Strident is the merman King of the Ocean:
Son of the almighty sea-god ,Poseidon .
Strident lived happily with his daughter, Sirenetta ,
Whose voice charmed anyone who'd ever met her,
But Sirenetta was a restless adolesent
With a personality most effervescent,
And she wanted to explore the world above water-
She fancied herself as a Royal globetrotter!
On her very first evening above the waves,
She saved a handsome prince from a watery grave ,
And with Prince Charmless she became enthralled.
Her father King Strident was quite appalled
And warned her against this unhealthy passion,
But Sirenetta ignored him in true teenage fashion !
She went to the seawitch, a distant relation,
Who was banished from Atlantis for eating crustaceans .
The seawitch, Jezibaba, prepared her a spell,
But Sirenetta had to give up her voice as well .
When Jezibaba sang with the mermaid's voice
Charmless made it clear Jezibaba was his choice .
Sirenetta couldn't stand by-she had to rebel
For if truth be told, she's a feisty mademoiselle,
And it all ended happily,what happened you say?
Well, you will have to come and see it on performance day!
