Where's a girl going to find the right shells? (Terza Rima Sonnet)
When my father heard about my audition
He forbade it, even called me a trollop,
But Disney's code proves a tighter condition.
Perhaps if I carried less of a wallop,
I wouldn't find myself in such a tight jam,
When what I need is an over-sized scallop.
I'm twenty-one and busty, how do I cram
my "so perfect for the part" womanly charms
Into these halves better suited to a clam?
They will have a fit if I raise up my arms.
If I turn too far, will the censors say whoa?
I don't much care, but Disney's raising alarms.
I have a solution to improve the show,
Let's move The Little Mermaid to HBO!
