On the very spot in Manly where Gov Phillips once got speared,
Today a hundred mermaids suddenly appeared.
After preening and photos, despite the chilly temps,
Into the water,the mermaids then all went.
From our workout viewpoint , we noted with our cam.
That in amongst the mermaids, there was also a merman.
What would the Gov have made of this we wondered as we worked?
One thing’s for sure, he would’ve had a great big....smirk!
