I want to be a mermaid… (poem)

I wish I was a mermaid
Darting beneath the sea.

I’ve always been good at swimming
To a greater or lesser degree.
I can even hold my breath
For a minute and 23.
I sang a song to a sailor once
(Though that’s no guarantee)
And I know the names of several fish:
I saw them on tv.

So, I’m perfectly suited
I think we can all agree.
I want to be a mermaid:
That’s the life for me!
