; ) a true story
From murky blue and gray to black
It pulled away and then rushed back
Pounding rocks and tickling toes, across the sand.. I watched it go!
I gave a giggle then ran a-wry
wanting to keep my tootsies dry
It grabbed my ankles and would Not. Let. Go. Ack! Shackled by the undertow
Oh, what to do could this be true?
I was whisked into the ocean blue
First bobbed and lolled then tossed a-shore, I awoke in Anderson's fairy lore
For as I tried to stand I'd fail
Crippled by.. my mermaid's tail?!
And that is how (now I regale), I came to rest beside the whale.
A silly pair beached near the waves, he wanted back in and I wanted.. legs!
