The Mermaid 

Borrowed from Pinterest

I saw a pretty mermaid

A-sitting on a shelf

I didn’t interrupt her

She was talking to herself

I watched her speak

Of seas and waves

To someone who wasn’t there

Her eyes they shone

My ears were slaves

I sat there unaware

Of the tide that rose

Til above my nose

The waters surgéd forth

And there I left the mermaid

Talking for all her worth.
