The Mighty Narwhal

Nature's Badass

The narwhal's name comes from the Old Norse word nár, meaning "corpse." This probably refers to the narwhal's color. Or the fact that people die of fright when they see its badassness.

I have written two poems about the narwhal. Ahem.

narwhal sandwich
my favorite lunch
whose crunchy tusks I love to munch
narwhal sandwich
you swam through ice
but between my bread you taste so nice
