Siren Says Swim


‘There once was a siren at sea
Who said, ‘I doth call out to thee
Drawing you from the shore
Just for my fins to adore
Only for us to swim in fish pee

I wrote this limerick today after watching the movie “Jaws” and considering the word prompt, “Relish,” from The Daily Post. I doodled the image of the mermaid two years ago for my post, “Mid-Week Mermaid.”


One response to “Siren Says Swim”

  1. There’s an old Rocky Horror callback line (I know, they’re ALL old callback lines at this point) from the pool scene: “Fishies f*ck in it, don’t swim in it…”
