Spies of the Sea – A Poem

After watching Disney’s, The Little Mermaid, during the live production on Fox in honor of its Thirtieth anniversary. The film is an adaption of the story, The Little Mermaid written by Danish author Hans Christian Anderson. Aside from the name of Ursula’s two henchmen Flotsam and Jetsam, not much is revealed about them. I thought it would be interesting to portray the loyalty and dedication they feel for Ursula.

Emberly Lily Summers is a native to Baltimore, Maryland and has been writing for the last fifteen years. Her inspiration comes from nature, the fantasy and paranormal literature, classic musicals such as The Phantom of The Opera and Wicked and of course, her favorite music ranging from showtunes to punk rock. Emberly also loves reading about magic, mythology, faeries, witches, and dragons.  She hopes to inspire creativity and imagination to others with her writing.

She has had several poems featured in magazines and is currently writing a short story for an anthology run by Perfectly Poisoned Anthologies.

Flotsam and Jetsam


Spies of the Sea

Faithful minions to our queen. Serving her in her quest for power to conquer the seven seas. United as one deceptive entity providing her with a watchful gaze.

To spy on those who would resist het charms of making their dreams come true.

Green serpentine slithering foes prowling the ocean floor for our masters next victim. Our electric bodies ready to coil and strike down those that pose to slay her.

We ask of nothing in return, fueled by her soothing praise and motherly unconditional love. Cooed by being called her babies charge our unyielding quest to serve our majesty.

Inspiration Behind the Art After seeing the success of Luna’s character poems found here on deviantart, I wanted to try my hand at it. She had already written a poem for Ursula, titled The Sea Witch, so I found it fitting to write one for the two eels she sees as her henchmen and eyes of the sea. They seem cunning and manipulative, getting Ariel to ignore her instincts to avoid getting Ursula’s help and follows them to Ursula’s lair.

With the success of the poem, I hope to try writing more in the same style in the future. I have been heavily inspired by Luna, so check out the link to her gallery over on deviant art posted above.
