Encounter with a Mermaid

A clever write, by Regis. Enjoy!

Alone by the wild sea I sought what I might see;

When all of a sudden, before me on a rock,

Reclined one of the wondrous women of the sea –

A mythical mermaid with whom I wished to talk.

“Mermaid, fair mermaid, why is it you hide?

My wish is to see you and to perhaps know you;

But I cannot find you when you hide in the tide,

And dive behind the waves to keep from my view.”

“I hide for I’m shy and really quite wary,

And I have reason to take care and beware;

For your race’s shown itself to be mostly quite scary

And the kind souls I’ve met have been rather rare.”


“I promise, dear mermaid, that I will tell no one

About you and your sisters and your home in the deep.

I’ll keep very quiet and until you are done,

      A great reminder, that Earthians are not, by virtue of certain accomplishments, the highest on the intelligence scale of Earthian intelligence – we just think we are because we can make things. The making of things however, could also be our undoing, or the undoing of man’s civilization. My thoughts on it.
