Mermaids

August 11, 2008

It’s always been my
personal question,
regarding mermaids:

How can they bear
wearing sea shells
for a bra?
Sand and rough edges
must scrape away that
smooth skin Disney
so enthusiastically promotes
with the red-headed princess.

And those tails.
Wouldn’t it be quite
impossible, to swim
with a lopsided center of gravity?
