Random Creature Feature:
A Selkie is creature from mythology who can transform from seal to human, and is most widely associated with tragic tales.
A selkie can choose to transform into a human form, and in many tales, upon seeing this form, a human falls in love with them. In one tale, the human hides the selkies skin so she can not transform, and they live together as a good couple until the day where she finds her skin and goes back to the sea, taking all the kids they had with her. The husband, broken hearted, dies alone.
Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”
