Who has heard of the story
of half the female in her fishy glory?
Who won back a trident,
while remaining silent.
Their story is long,
filled with plenty o song.
The story would end at the shoreline,
if they both knew how to sign
American Sign Language.
And the story would be over, chance is.
Ariel could sign "The voice of the mermaid was mine"
And Eric would say, "Okay fine."
A total of ten minutes,
And we could all go about our business.
Cut the sea witch, cut the eels,
cut Ariel battling with heels.
Cut the daddy-daughter bonding,
and Ursula's creepy stalking.
The story would be over
No need for a hostile takeover
Of the sea.
this story continued needlessly.
Maybe not with hand waving,
just handwriting in the sand, engraving
But Disney needs money
and children don't find Ariel dying chummy.
So they make a five-minute movie an hour
while the milk I left out sours.
Does that make sense?
this poem has hit a fence.
So for your expense
of the poem that misrepresents
The Little Mermaid.
