The Boys Run a Dolls' Slave Market.
Against the fence are dolls arrayed:
rag or china, wood or bone,
never a doll stands there alone,
and in their hands are signs displayed
of what you might give to make one your own.
Role model X stands third in line --
though on his shirt a number 9 --
strikes his pose: the Alpha Male...
The price for him? A pint of ale!
(Or a pair of boots of exclusive design.)
Or what would you give for The Evil One,
for his brand of nonsense to enlighten your fun?
For hours of unrivalled iniquity?
To complete each each day with such devilry
the ask is a Nat King Cole C.D.!
There's a dragon on fire (seems a strange device)
with a list of apps as its bargain price.
So what should one do with a dragon on fire,
but use it to light the funeral pyre
of the dead girl begging a bowl of rice.
There's a skeleton rising out of a grave
bristling with sensors and weapons of death.
He's come to destroy or he's come for to save.
he's hero or villain, but don't smell his breath!
He's yours for a Batmobile and cave.
There comes a small girl with dolls in a pram --
F1 vintage and faster than that. Stops with a slam.
Dolls tumble together. Beware of whiplash.
Displays for the boys a purse full of cash.
I'll buy them all, boys. Wham-banger- Bam!
They laugh at her then, so she goes in the shop,
comes out with a box of small bags of sweets,
hundreds and thousands and toffees that pop
and liquorice boot laces and faces and teets.
The deal is soon done, the air full of tweets.

Sometimes saviors come in small packages and save the day in unusual ways.
Nice work here, Dave.
I really love the way this flows, it was an absolutely delight to read. Loved the title, full of character, excellent work =)
A wee gem :-)
This is a delightful bit of poetry, Dave!
wow dave a bit surreal around the edges....the skeleton rising up and the batmobile...not knowing if its the hero or villain...really like that stanza....ha interesting story telling....
Delightful Dave. Such a picture it paints.
Colourful, rich and delightful lines.
Yes, a very clever creation which does paint a wonderful picture.
If I were the girl I'd like to buy them.
How fantastic when I could spend my time being surrounded by them...
sheer delight. the groove in this piece was to say the least astounding. but one may wonder, if creating mere dolls can be so much fun, how much fun must he be having up there creating us.
Lovely Dave - a wee gem indeed.
Cloudia said it just right.
Oh I wish I could buy them all...it would be such fun to be surrounded by so many unique creations - a wonderful second childhood beckons!
Another true masterpiece, Dave!:)
Such a lovely imagination you have Dave! Delightful pictures come to mind with every stanza!
What a pleasure to read! I love the way the poem unravels, like going downhill on a bike (on a car-free path!) :-)
Greetings from London.
"So what should one do with a dragon on fire,
but use it to light the funeral pyre." Sharp!
