Mermaid Poetry

The little mermaid sat and dreamed
Of a life with humans up above.
She wanted to dance with her prince.
She would give up anything for love.

She agreed to deformity,
Giving up her sleek graceful tail.
Her very life would be forfeit
If in this great quest she should fail.

Mermen must have been much more true
For her to agree to such a plan.
She gambled everything and failed.
She was not cherished by her man.

The Brothers Grimm told her sad tale
Of true love again not returned.
A woman who bestows her love
Often by fickle man is spurned.
