The marine biologists of Scotland
spend each and every day
tagging seals, cleaning the sea
and keeping poachers at bay.
But they’re really helping selkie folk.
To them, tags are wedding rings
and sealskins moved to labs
are proposals for marrying.
But unlike the days of Celts,
when these bare women find the men
they turn away and run
instead of taking them to their dens.
But with more strange ladies appearing
these exasperated scientists gave in
letting the lasses follow them around
as they study those odd sealskins.
But alas, the story continues!
As all around the world
The guardians of nature
Come back to a dying world.
From trees about to be cut down
Come vengeful nymphs and fae
From murky, plastic-filled seas
Come mermen and maids in dismay.
While coming from magic origins,
They all appreciate science,
Finding one who disbelieves it
To be more of a nuisance.
So no matter if you are an animal,
person, or a sort of blend
we all make up the Earth’s ecosystem
and must help each other to stop its end.
