The Little Mermaid's Haiku

Once upon a time

A mermaid was curious

About life on land

 

Ariel could talk

But her life would be shortened

With each word she spoke

 

She loved a human

She hoped that he would love her

So she risked her life

 

The man noticed her

He thought she was beautiful

They both fell in love

 

As time flew by fast

Ariel was in danger

Her lifeline decreased

 

She never told him

She died not telling the man

And withered away

 

The man was confused

He was furious with her

And showed no mercy

 

Started a new life

Married a different girl

He left Ariel
