#100poeticanswers 88: How Do Mermaids Get Home From Parties?

An absolutely beautiful and important question from Tulsi.

  •  

After the mermaid disco

When the moon shines on the waves

The tired and laughing mermaids

Pour out of the disco caves

  •  

They’ve been dancing to the music

That through the water thrums

With a big blue whale on vocals

And an octopus on drums

  •  

They’ve been drinking seaweed cocktails

And fine kelp wine and such

And they’re swimming’s kind of wonky

Cause they’ve had a bit too much.

  •  

Their ropes of pearls are tangled

And one has lost her comb.

Another her seashell bangles

And they all want to get back home.

  •  

So they all swim down together

Make sure everyone’s OK

And a fleet of dolphin taxis

Soon carry them away.

  •  

After the mermaid disco

They need to rest their heads

So the dolphins help the mermaids

To get back home to bed.
