A Fascination with Mermaids

Updated: Apr 19, 2020

The Mermaid's Tale

Be woeful, sweet

She has a tail

Instead of feet

When other fish

Are far too slow

She can't tap her foot

To make them go.

When she thinks she's having

A real bad day

She can shake her fist

But not walk away

I hope she does not

Dwell on this.

Think of all the blessings

She would miss.

For to glide beneath

The ocean blue

Seems like Paradise

To me and you.

I have a friend who loves mermaids.

She is usually wearing some piece of jewelry or clothing that reflects this obsession. She collects mermaid everything and vends at nautical craft shows. Basically, she is a mermaid. I can dig it.
