The Sailors' Mermaid

The Sailors' Mermaid There once was a manatee named Mary. She, a mammal was not very hairy. One day while at sea. She said this shouldn't be! So, she bought a blond wig from Sea-Fairy. © Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen Poetic Form Limerick

I came here to see what YOU wrote. It is darling, Dane Ann. I was so surprised. It's been a really lucky week for me. Maybe my moon was aligned just right or something. So many other funny limericks. I know a few that made me laugh right out loud! Luv, Andrea

You can't have a mermaid without long blond hair. Dugongs in disguise. A comical spectacle...good one Dane Ann....Margaret
