KRAWK DAY SPECIAL
Never Taunt a Fire Krawk
Think again before you tease
A fire Krawk; he wouldn't be pleased.
'Though jokes and jibes may seem like fun,
When he gets mad, you'd want to run.
Be wary of his ebony scales
That end in amber at his tail,
For just one touch of this Krawk's skin
May turn you into an ashy heap.
A taunted fire Krawk could jump
At you and hang on 'till you're numb.
His sharp claws aren't just for the hunt,
They tickle 'till you dissolve in laughs.
Stay clear of that scaly tail for
One quick swish will turn you pale,
Swiped away from where you stand,
Sent flying far into distant land.
So never taunt a fire Krawk,
His pride can rarely take a knock,
Being a rare and painted Neopet
Does deserve some bit of respect.
Grimtooth the Pirate
In a shadow-draped corner
Of a dark, dingy Inn,
Sits a fierce Krawk villain
With a dangerous grin.
This is Grimtooth the Pirate!
A most frightening sight,
With a hook on his arm,
That's seen many a fight.
By night he's a gambler
At the game of Bilge Dice,
But take heed! For he cheats,
And he'll never play nice.
Should your dice roll be lucky,
Do not sigh with relief,
Take your coins, but be wary,
Of Grimtooth the thief!
He is not to be trusted,
And my words you should mark,
The Krawk's grim teeth are sharp,
And his bite's worse than his bark!
Terror of the Ghoti
The carnivorous Krawk,
An amphibious hawk,
Through the water will stalk
Though he crawls rather slow,
You should take care to know
That the Ghotis all go
For the Krawk is a beast
That exults in the feast,
'Till its hunger is ceased--
So the Ghoti will swim
To get far clear of him.
He'll attack on a whim,
Therefore take it from me,
When you see him, just flee,
Cause you don't want to be
Shopping on Krawk Island
'Twas a bright summer's day
And near sparkling sea,
We went for a walk,
My pet Eyrie and me.
Along warm open shores
We traipsed, he and I.
As we passed shops down the street,
I asked, "What should we buy?"
He thought for a moment,
Then faster he walked;
In excitement he cried,
"I want me a Krawk!"
"Krawk it is," I replied,
And turned into a store.
"A Krawk is the Petpet
You want... are you sure?"
"Sure as sails, am I!"
He cried, grabbing one tight.
"And I be thinkin' that
This little one be just right!"
I looked at the Krawk
He had chosen... so small!
"Well, perhaps," thought I,
"Food will make him grow tall."
"Let's go eat," I said
When we'd left the shop.
But my Eyrie asked that we
Explore caves first, then stop.
"Very well," I agreed,
And together we went:
Me, my Eyrie, his Krawk,
On our new goal intent.
The cave was tall and deep,
And sticky with slime,
But my Eyrie went in,
And I felt likewise inclined.
His Krawk wriggled free
Of his strong loving grip,
And into green growth
His little snout dipped.
"Eew!" I cried in disgust,
"That stuff looks like sludge!"
But my Eyrie gasped,
And gave me a nudge.
I watched in mute awe
At a spellbinding sight;
The Krawk grew tall, tall,
Shooting up like a kite!
I gazed at the Krawk,
"Ha!" said I, "I was right!
All you needed to grow
Was some food -- just a bite!"
The Krawk Swashbuckler
Hiya! The Swashbuckler shouts with the might
Of a Tyrannian beast with
Spread wings in full flight.
Swishing his sword and lashing his tail,
The courageous Krawk mangles the sail
Of a ship that has crossed over many a sea,
Of a ship that has crossed over many a sea.
With a suave grin that could woo any beauty
The Swashbuckler gathers his glittering booty.
Sheathing his cutlass and smiling so bright
He could light up even the darkest night.
Beneath him the crew gathers and plots,
Beneath him the crew gathers and plots.
With shrieks reminiscent of old battle cries
They believe the Swashbuckler
Shall meet his demise.
But the flamboyant Krawk grins triumphantly,
Swinging and slashing 'bove the sapphire sea.
With his pride and his cutlass, he cannot be beat,
With his pride and his cutlass, he cannot be beat.
As the last pirate falls to the salt-crusted floor
The dazzling Swashbuckler steals even more.
As he fills up his sacks with gold coins and jewels
He stares down at the defeated pirating fools.
But a greater danger begins to arise,
But a greater danger begins to arise.
Screaming and cursing, the captain leaps out
His blade hisses through the air
As he begins to shout,
"I have trained for this moment
For much too long!
Come, you Swashbuckler, and join me in song!
The song you forsake so long ago,
The song you forsake so long ago."
"I am no longer you pupil,
Your servant, your peer!"
The Swashbuckler cried, leaping back with a leer.
And drawing his cutlass the two began to brawl
As above, a yellow Pawkeet began to bawl.
Its mournful song echoed out 'cross the sea,
Its mournful song echoed out 'cross the sea.
Losing courage and strength
With each swift parry
The Swashbuckler became
Quite cautious and wary.
"If I give up now, I will be thrown to the sea!
What a horrible end for someone like me."
With a cry like a squall he lunged forward,
With a cry like a squall he lunged forward.
The captain stumbled back, dying and defeated.
"You coward! You yellow-belly,
You must've cheated!"
As his last breath escaped his foul lips,
The moon covered sun in a total eclipse.
The Swashbuckler vanished amongst the waves,
The Swashbuckler vanished amongst the waves.
They say you can find him in a dank greasy spoon
Where he acts like a fool and speaks like a loon.
But still others believe he began a new life.
One free of piracy and hierarchal strife.
They say you can find him happy and grinning,
They say you can find him happy and grinning.
And so goes the tale of the Swashbuckler.
