This heard in his home    Hygelac's thane,
great among Geats,    of Grendel's doings:
"Slew many soldiers,    Hrothgar's henchmen!
Stormtrooper squadrons    gladly gallumphed to Grendel.
Grisly Grendel grinned grimly,    seeing shiny new playthings,
Bonked each on the bean    while wielding a willow-tree,
Created cacophony   of coconut-like clunks.">>

 as he pounded        helms of the troopers
 ere joints cracked    and thews tore.

tell the foul monster      to scoop not such prey?
Who dared deprive him    of luncheon so tender;
within such hard shells  so uncouthly unframed.
