Barbie Dolls

When the walls waned
And the mob muscled in
With their boorish business,
The girls were scared.

When the size of their incisors
Scared the scruff away
From the lot of Harlots,
The girls were mad.

When the cracks from the knuckles
Clanged like slacks and buckles
And bones were busted backwards,
The girls fought back.

Don’t let the jester tell you
That the toys will last forever.
For they are not equal,
When the old ones wear down
   And are laid to rest
      In the rusty toy chest.
