Wooden bones

 His strings are attached
But he is as still as a stone
Unable to move his wooden bones
The magic wand has no effect
He has eyes  that seem detached 
No pulse that anyone detects
The puppet master  sits in despair
 It is just as he had feared
Alas! ...the puppet has become the puppeteer!
