Day 20

The prompt: use 6 words from a list at (I used squander, mercurial, salt, bilious, dunderhead, miraculous, willowy, seaweed)

"Wisdom and the Sea"

Twice he squandered mercurial salts,
that foolish, bilious dunderhead.
In his quest to mend his gaping faults
he forgot the miraculous life he led.

If she had never emerged-
that lovely, willowy, wise mermaid
(wrapped in seaweed, she upsurged)-
who knows what other mistakes he'd have made.
