Off the shores it was found,

Discovered quite by accident with sound,

Is it a monster or just an overgrown jelly fish,

Either way it dwarfs the diver, of scientists it does confound…


Tentacles stretching for a hundred yards,

Catching it prey, bones it does then discard,

As a diver if this thing did loom,

I would get the hell out of there before it did me consume…


An unassuming creature though it may be,

Surrounded by so much floating debris,

Bigger it is than any found in the deep ocean depths,

Man may of it feel fear, but me I just want to it see,

Of course from a safe distance, bet you won’t as well disagree…

I'd much rather be seeing just the pictures! Saw this, and other pics, on the net...the beauty that lies within the depths of our oceans, I could never have imagined! Your words brought it all to life, Ed!

This sucker is bloody enormous - WOW! It sure looks like a monstrous jellyfish to me. But who knows anymore. It may be sub-surface apartments for the gray invasion.
