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!
