I Am Just a Ragdoll

Written by: Beverly Crespo

I am just a ragdoll
Created to entertain,
Not pretty like the others,
But button-nosed and plain.
My legs are too weak to stand,
So I never learned to walk.
My mouth is just a bit of string,
So I never learned to talk.
Yet, I am invited to many tea parties
But cannot drink the tea.
A well concerted plan I think 
To have a laugh at me.
I go only where I am taken
Or go nowhere at all
And am subject to every whim and fancy,
Every beck and call.
But if I am not happy
At least there is no pain,
For I am just a ragdoll
Button-nosed and plain.
