The Rhyming Little Mermaid 5
(Adrift)

In came the air into newly formed lungs.
Back it went out in a blast.
Serena opened her eyes and saw new legs,
She was absolutely aghast!
She felt them with her old hands
And found Smoothness like her skin.
No longer scales and fishy tails.
No longer rainbow fins.

She touched the bottom of her feet,
And then screamed out in pain.
The needle feeling the witch had told her of-
Had quite a powerful sting.

Then she heard a voice as clear as glass,
Calling out: โ€œMiss! Miss!โ€
She looked and saw Prince Silas (and two guards) riding toward her,
And everything was bliss.
He dismounted immediately and came to her side.

Silas: โ€œMiss, are you all right?โ€

She opened her mouth to speak to him,
But her mouth would not comply.
He looked in her mouth and saw the blood,
Coating the inside.

Silas: โ€œShe must have been attacked by pirates,
And left at sea to die.
God saw fit to save this one.
Whatever she needs, comply.โ€

They lifted her onto the Princeโ€™s land-horse.
(Very different from horses at sea.)
And they rode her back to the Princeโ€™s palace.
What joy Serena had to be free!
