Defending Dollhood

3a When seven
7b three boys insulted my doll.
11b Motherhood instincts rose, about to exact toll.

5c Managed to shut-up
3d the three boys
3d who taunt toys.
5e One father witness
9e laughed, didn’t stop his son’s girl distress.
11f Other two boys blamed fight on a boy bully.
7f I’m triumphant, smug– truly
3a felt even..

My Example

Throw-a-way (Form: Jay’s Way)

Aw gee shucks
It was Christmas yesterday;
It’s pretty petty I’d be inclined to say
to object and moan we’ve got too much
dross and dreck and such.
We complain
with disdain
of purposeful waste,
of plastic and cardboard crushed with haste,
but upstream and downstream many people thrive
on waste, as do those who drive
garbage trucks.
