Leviathan (Lightly)

Knock all you want;
I won’t let you in.

Eyes the size of city-states,
Without friends or loves or mates.
Singular and yet complete,
Unloved, unseen, unheard, with arms replete.

Accuse it of gigantism
(Or underwater onanism)
In depths unseen by any eyes,
From which may It never, ever rise,

(Like Cthulhu it lies, dreaming, dead;
You could fit a city on its head.

(Like Dagon, cold and swimming,
With no hair in need of triming.

(Like the monster of Loch Ness,
Though 137 times larger,
I guess.)

Leviathan, Leviathan,
Please leave me alone
And just eat my kin.
