PAPER DOLL

PAPER DOLL

fancy apartment
big sctreen tv
gold and diamonds
oh my would you look at me
painted
primed
botoxed
every line
born in Ontario
talk with an accent
when asked...i answer
i am of British descent
eyelashes worth
every cent
missed
car paymrnt
and don't
have rent
nose so high
could drown in a rain
calf implants
not causing too much pain
new parts
i like to flounce
surgeon called
check bounced
hair extensions
flowing long
not much to do
skill sets aren't strong
floated through life
cute with bling
facing the mirror
thought of something
someday
my hair
will gray
skin won't fit tight
nothing on me
will seem right
how will
that feel
could i live
with being real
cleared off the
make-up shelf
examined myself
not bad i thought
not bad at all
not too short
not too tall
no phony pretty
no paper doll
only me
exactly what
i'm supposed to be
perfect as
i am
nowย ain't that
a damn
was living
a lie
trying to be
a type
found my beauty
when i realized
i am
a butterfly

I agree with Philipos. And it's also the title of a favourite "standard"
given zest and zing by Frank Sinatra. ๐Ÿ˜Š
