Barbie Dolls: The Go-Getter Edition

Revisiting Accomplished Avenue
Smiles from my soul dimples face
See, the Sun arose there taking
Permanent residence, to look
Back upon shadows of fathering

With 3 girls Pepto-Bismol isn't
The only pink item I've seen...
A familiarity with scrunchies, 
Barrettes and ponytails exist
Alongside EasyBake Ovens,
Candy Land and those damn
Barbie Dolls

When we bought shoes, Barbies,
Needed shoes. When we bought
clothes, Barbies, was in desperate
Need of clothing also

I'm chuckling about being king of
Dodging plastic stilettos on carpet,
Consoler of children who's doll was
Missing her head

3 cars with passenger seats 
conspired Ken, times 3... And I'm
like, pump y'all brakes shorties

My mental rooster crowed before
The dusk of subliminal messaging,
Allowing then to play as children
With Barbie, not allowing Barbie to
Foster vain and submissive dreams
Chased by our, Barbies

A cultivated green thumb nurtures
Sprouting beauty, hydrating roots
From springs of independence
Superseding fixation on hand out 
Hope from him.

Respect and Promiscuity, dwelling
Within the same temple, Prohibited
Houses with open doors become
Sanctuaries for thieves

Intellectual makeovers before 
Applying makeup. The real you
Lying beneath a grave of mascara
Lamp-shading natural light

We've pruned and trimmed their

Of a

Disabling wilting into rusted rose petals
Un-budding towards Eastern's Sun,
Sunbathing full bloom in it's western setting
Opened for ' Rose Petals Conversation'

Enhanced from within is a rare beauty
I've played with my doll collection, manipulating
Aura's color, emitting from the Mariana Trench
Of their souls
Breaking false pretenses and facades.

Real lives can be ruined through a replica of
Reality, if applied to their lives... Barbie
