When fairies danced and Unicorns pranced;

and dragons flew the skies;

There lived creatures with such features;

you would not believe your eyes.

~~~~~

They lived in caves beyond sea’s waves;

half women and half fish were they.

They swam the sea, living free;

till sailed a mighty ship into their bay.

~~~~~

With nets thrown out; the men did shout;

“Capture one, or two or three!”

The mermaids swam deep, their lives to keep,

but one just could not flee.

~~~~~

In their net to her regret;

she found herself a captive of the men.

Poseidon roared and then employed

trident and summoned storm begin.

~~~~

The ship rolled on seas controlled

by the angry God of ocean’s rage.

Waves so high, made sailors cry;

as the ship sank and became their cage

~~~~~

Into the deep their souls to keep;

the mermaid was safely homeward bound.

Calmed returned their lesson learned;

from that day forth; no mermaids sailors found.
