The Nameless Monster

Once upon a time, in a land far away
There lived a nameless monster.
The monster was dying to have a name,
So the monster made up his mind
And set out on a journey to look for one.
But the world was such a very large place
The monster split in two, and went on seperate journeys
One went east, and the other headed west.
The one who went east came upon a village
There was a blacksmith who lived at the villages entrance
"Mister Blacksmith, please give me your name" said the monster.
"I can't give you my name" replied the blacksmith.
"If you give me your name,
I'll go inside you and make you strong" said the monster.
"Really?" said the blacksmith
"If you make me stronger, I'll give you my name"
The monster went into the blacksmith.
And so the monster became Otto the blacksmith.
Otto was the strongest man in town
But then one day he said
"Look at me, look at me
the monster inside of me is getting bigger"
Munch Munch, Chomp Chomp,
Gobble Gobble, Gulp.
The hungry monster ate up Otto from the inside out
Once again, he was a monster without a name.
Next, he went into Hans the shoemaker
However, Munch Munch, Chomp Chomp,
Gobble Gobble, Gulp
Once again, he went back to being a monster without a name.
Then he became Thomas the hunter
But soon, Munch Munch, Chomp Chomp,
Gobble Gobble, Gulp
Back he went to being a monster without a name
The monster next went to a castle to look for a nice name
He came upon a very sick boy who lived in that castle
"If you give me your name, I'll make you strong" said the monster
The boy replied
"If you can make me healthy and strong, I will give you my name"
So the monster jumped right into the boy
And the boy became full of vigour
The king was overjoyed he announced
"The prince is healthy, the prince is strong"
The monster became quite fond of the boy's name
He was also quite pleased with his royal life in the castle.
So he controlled himself, no matter how
ravenous his appetite became.
Day after day, despite his growing hunger
The monster stayed put inside the boy
But finally the hunger just became too great
"Look at me, look at me" said the boy.
"the monster inside of me has gotten this big"
The boy devoured the king and all his servants.
Munch Munch, Chomp Chomp, Gobble Gobble, Gulp
The castle was lonely now with everyone gone
so the boy left on a journey. He walked and walked for days.
And then one day the boy came upon
The monster who had gone west
"I have a name" said the boy.
"And it's such a wonderful one at that"
But the monster who went west replied
"Who needs a name?
I'm perfectly happy without one
After all that's what we are, nameless monsters"
The boy ate up the monster who went west.
At last he had found a name
But there was no longer anyone to call him by it.
Such a shame, because Johann
was such a wonderful name.

Submitter's comments:

The name of the story in czech is called Obluda, kierá nemá své jméno which literally translates to something along the lines of “A Monster Without a Name of It's Own.”
