Is it beached?
Has it beached itself?
Perhaps coming to shore.
Is it one of the deeps unknown?
Has it been seen before?
In old legends of the sea as a monster from the deep.
Can this be why people vanish on beaches?
Out for a nice nights walk so they can be eaten!
It is truly a vacation they will never forget.
Might their remains be found on the ocean floor?
Will they be digested bone and all?
Eight arms an octopus or giant squid make.
This appears to be neither.
So why does it come to land for a meal?
Would you sun bathe on this beach?
A tan for the taste of this creature?
Do waves erase its passing?
Will we ever know?
