Walking is hard with fins for feet,

Considering no one swims anymore.

Mermaids are lovely, yes,

but practical?

They may know the glow of the moon,

but this is useful only to their ways.

There is a reason they have disappeared;

a flash of scales in silvery water

and then stillness.

Be that as it may,

The world is less

without them

in it.
