Gefilte Mermaids

There we were

sporting in the pool

frisking in the water

splashing and jumping

slightly on the plump side

but really

quite scrumptious

if your ideal

of pulchritude

runs to green

and gray mermaids

 

anyway we vow

after the Chag

it’s weight watchers for us

 

But look!

a hand from above

grasps, we wriggle

but too late

we’re bashed on the head

decapitated

slit from top to tail

disemboweled

ground, minced

and shortly

mixed, balled

thrown back

it the water

salted, sweetened,

simmered

 

Look at us

how attractive

in our little

carrot hat

we’re so good looking

you could eat us

 

anyway you vow

after the Chag

it’s weight watchers for us
