Beware

Beware of those silver-tongued serpents
 the men that charm you out of your skin 

stay close to the water, for you know the tales
 and no man is worth losing immortality.
stay away from the sea-witches

those with potions and charms to tempt
 their magic does not come without a price 

you’ll regret it, I promise you that.
if a prince catches your eye, 
why, cut out your heart instead. 
mortals are fleeting, foolish, frivolous 
stay under the sea, with your sisters beside.

-Jennifer.Hall
