Mermaid

If i was a mermaid I would frolic
on the white crested waves
appearing from the shore comic
then plunging down to the caves

Sunbathe on the warm rocks
diving down out of sight
so as not to give any shocks
nor frighten humans into flight

My voice so golden entices
if they follow a watery grave
 will keep them in its clutches
until they are now enslave

Beauty of the oceans wide
pearl necklace I do wear
shells and seaweed applied
I don my translucent nightwear

As I travel the oceans like a flash
yet another heart or three i captor
although they struggle and thrash
I place them safe in my ardor

So warn your men least they stray
to wear a blindfold and mufflers
and to walk only on the causeway
only thus can they avoid my amors
