There was once a mermaid,
From the sea.
Who wished to be,
like you and me.
To freely walk on city streets.
And find a place worn with peace.
Her home you see, was wrought with strife.
But in her war we would not fight.
For she was mer and we were not,
And so her dreams were soon forgot.
Though she tried to beg and plead,
Her life was one we paid no heed.
A voice lost amongst the many,
If one life means nothing what does any?
