the girl had come unglued

we were playing baseball
margaret got mad
she told us to go outside
but we were being bad

when margaret exploded
she couldn’t be subdued
bits of her were everywhere
the girl had come unglued
we stuck her back together
the only way we could
but we were pretty shaky
so she didn’t look too good
perhaps we should
have listened
perhaps our ma won’t see
that margaret is not the
stunning doll she used to be
