The Mermaid With a Grenade
Along the shore there was a maid
who brought to the boat a grenade-
fear ran through the men,
who fished now and then,
“boys do you like it, it's homemade?!?
They grabbed their fish, ran off the boat,
for it was scary, they couldn’t float!
She saved the young men,
who fished now and then---
and so my folks…that’s all she wrote!
