The Gojira Ur-text has been discovered

Needless to say, it's epic!

Here's how it begins:
Godzilla's wrath, to Earth the direful spring
Of woes unnumber'd, heavenly goddess, sing!
What grudge could fire the fierce atomic breath
That burnt so many citizens to death?
What move four mighty limbs to crush and tear
Whole city blocks and scatter them to air?
Vast anger that found voice and fuelled the roar
Of this whale-monkey-kind-of-ichthyosaur.
Declare, O Muse! what woke such monstrous foe
And summon'd him from ocean bed below;
What stirred him from millennial slumbers deep
To swap-out slaughter for abyssal sleep?
What made this slug-a-seabed rise as killer?
Good Gods, why did ye thus make ill Godzilla?
Click the link above to read the rest
Of this mighty tale in verse expressed. 

God damn you Adam Roberts! look what you made me do
To verse you've summoned my writing too!
