Lokasenna is a mythological poem from the Poetic Edda .
The gods have met together for a drinking time in the hall of the giant Aegir. When everybody is praising Aegir's efficient servants, Loki kills one of them, Fimafengr, and is driven out of the hall as a result. This is where the Lokasenna begins .
Loki tries to regain entry but is turned back by the servant Eldir. After he has insisted upon his rights as Odin's blood-brother, he is allowed to re-enter. He does not greet Bragi. When Idun comes to Bragi's defence, she is derised by Loki as well. From this point on all the gods and their servants are victims of Loki's derision.
When Borr returns from his journey to the east, he drives Loki out by threatening him with his hammer Mjollnir.
