my long red locks
tentacle around me
my breasts dangle
deliciously free

I live beneath the sea
where dolphins coral
urchins and whales be
we live harmoniously

I am not a siren
for I wouldn’t harm
those cute sexy sailors
won’t cause them alarm

for knowing they are safe
is my real heart’s balm
we’ve been given bad press
and it causes me distress

so I surface regularly
to blog on double U P
you need to know
that we just ain’t so

think twice when you see
me surfing the waves
keep your damned plastic
away from my place!

  1. A humorus poem with a serious message! I wish there really were mermaids and mermen who could discuss the pollution issue with world governments. Maybe then people would change their ways.

  3. As soon as I saw the title “Sirens”…. I immediately thought of this song. “Love Is the Drug” by Roxy Music from their 1975 studio album “Siren”(which I have in my vinyl collection) …Enjoy xx

  4. If this Siren had a blog on WP, I would surely read it as it seems she would have many words of wisdom and some saucy tales to tell! Would her pen name start with a C..K, perhaps? 😉

    • lol you have me rolling around with laughter … I’ve been called many things in my lifetime but never a siren! Guess it’s not too late to have a change of career 😉

  5. Let’s hope those sexy sailors keep their plastic to themselves … and I’ m a bit worried about her “dangling breasts”. Maybe a mer-bra would help? lol
