My Turn will Come

A battle with myself
I am still on the shelf
What do I do to be seen

Is it my none red lips
Is it I have no hips
Why are they always so mean

Sitting here patiently
None seem to notice me
I want to feel like a queen

Stand tall I admonish
You really are a dish
You could be on the big screen

My turn will come I know
To be dressed and on show
In my best dress of dark green

With all the trimmings round
I look good and astound
Topped with red beads I preen

Just hold me gentle please
You must never me squeeze
My holly leaves prick quite keen.
