    If I were a mermaid, I would realise that
    A clear sea that reflects the Sun perfectly
    is only a part of the war songs and
    sagas sung of our folk,
    If I were a mermaid, I would, in reality
    be living in a murky, toxic sea
    that grieves for the colour Blue.
    If I were a mermaid, I would be
    swimming amid plastic bags
    and fauna that parody Pisces
    in a cruel way,
    If I were a mermaid living in the seas of
    today,
    I wouldn't be a part of Happily ever fairytales
    nor would I be a part of a legends where
    I sink ships,
    I would, instead, be mourning the
    murder of my Home.
