Medusa Of The Sea.

 

A head of water serpents,

swirling through the depths,

Medusa, she’ll go fishing

and see just who she gets.

The mermaids are her servants,

their beauty is a lure

for all the sailors on their boats

with thoughts so far from pure.

Their hair is long and golden,

if you forget about the tail

they almost always captivate

any chosen male.

Sport is what they’re after,

their victims bound to chase

but all too soon they’ll come to find

Medusa wins the race.

She it is who gets first pick,

and she’ll ensnare the best,

but the mermaids are then free

to devour all the rest.

To look upon this Medusa’s face

will not turn you to stone;

you’ll find that you are being stripped

til all that’s left is bone.
