Far from a mere manatee
Mermaids appeal endlessly…
To men on the waves
That sanity saves
Providing female fantasy.
‘Though the style was once more obese,
The interest of this kind never ceased…
What helped sailors find some piece.
He remembered a fantasy groovy
Influenced by a W.C. Fields movie….
With a voluptuous vamp
Disturbing the camp
Of Olympian athletes moody.
Combined with a mermaid slinky
His adolescent mind edged toward kinky…
It wasn’t X-rated
But clearly demonstrated
His fantasy required some hard thinking.
