I’d like to be a shiny fish in life’s great big sea

I’d splash and swim all around my seaside fantasy

I’d nibble at the feast with tuna or some cod

Who knows, because I might digest scraps that they discard

Oh how much fun it would be to travel in their stream

And realise even I may share a mermaid’s dream !

My thoughts do turn to silly things

Like hugs and kisses and brass rings

Like elephants and tiger eyes

A world chock full of wild surprise

A heart that’s packed with joy and peace

And music that will never cease.

Ballet shoes made of satin white

That keep on dancing through the night,

The love of God and angels sweet

Who choose to walk with unclad feet

Chocolates and marshmallows too

To help our sweetest dreams come true !

I look around what do I see

A world that’s built on fantasy

It’s all about the vampire’s touch

Super heroes, witches and such.

While Spiderman or rich Bruce Wayne

Are concepts both wild and insane

Star Wars, Aliens and Doctor Who

Bewitched, Bedazzled, through and through.

I find my world is quite enough

I’m not yet ready for this stuff

I fear for what may be in store

Seems true, nothing’s real any more !

Oh Cinderella are you still there

Is that you hiding beneath the stair

I’m sorry if your life went awry

I know you’ll give it another try

There’s a lesson I have learned from you

To myself I shall remain true blue.

And when my back is against the wall

I won’t be shy I will make that call

One-eight-hundred fairy A-I-D

Won’t you please come and help set me free

I’ve been a grownup for far too long

It’s time I chose to just tag-along !

Lions and tigers in a row

And when they move where do they go

Into the jungles of the mind

Midst fantasies we yearn to find.

Camels and horses are there too

Waiting faithful for me and you

With rainbowed colors they all wear

In their wild flowing sculpted hair.

Seems right for us to ride away

When organ music pipes to play

As round in circles we must go

Until it’s time for life’s next show !

 

MERMAIDS ( 2015 ) 2015/04/14

Have you ever seen a mermaid when you’ve been out to sea

I’m sure that I have not nor anyone that’s known to me

Seems mermaids were a help to men at least a thousand years

There is a place on the Rhine I’ve been told that one appears,

Unlike the Disney creatures who know all the rights from wrongs,

The sailors call them Lorelei they sing enchanted songs.

Like Homer’s Sirens tempted those from Troy who homeward bound

Did flounder on the rocks about on hearing their sweet sound,

I’m sad that I might have to spend another thousand years

To hear a mermaid chant her song into my waiting ears !

Flying carpets where have you gone

I need a rug to ride upon

Perhaps a shell like Venus had

Or dolphin’s back, like Alan Ladd.

We should recall those olden days

When fantasy was all the rage

And films and books and fables old

Like fairy tales were stories told.

Today the truth is all we’ve got

Accepting that, I’d rather not

While Ali Baba was his name

Those forty thieves brought him his fame

Arabia was mystic too

I liked it then, well didn’t you ?

Today tis sad, this world to think

It seems we’ve reached the final brink

There’s no time left for let’s pretend

The world we knew has met its end !
