The Mermaids’ Song by Kelsey Ketch

We rise up from the murky deep.

Our lilting song flows over the waves

And snare the souls of men we keep.

Then send them to their watery graves.

So easy are the mortals fooled.

They do not hear our taunting words.

Each ends up in a drowning pool

And yet they come to us in herds.

So, listen… listen to our voices,

You simple-minded men.

It’s not that we offer choices

About how your life will end…
