I can remember as a kid a toy that was popular, that I had called trolls They were funny little cavemen with colorful hair and eyes the glowed It was the fad to collect them all and to trim and shape their funny hair They were fun to style and show off their funny fashion flair Once the fad was over, they became the subject of horror movies Depicted as nasty, mischievous little demons that were loony They were evil green looking monsters out to get revenge A goal of taking over the world where goodness would end Trolls now take on the latter meaning in today’s world Lurking quietly and hidden until they come out unfurled Slinging verbal attacks toward others that are vile and mean Mainly cowards that are full of hot hair blowing off steam Trolls can go away and back to their miserable lonely homes Stay out of the limelight and stop throwing hurtful stones Trolls best belong as memories of sweet childhood toys Not cowardly beings out expressing hatred just to annoy

Oh my gosh! I remember these troll toys too! Thanks for bringing back that memory of my troll doll with his yellow hair. I agree with you about today’s mean trolls. They are awful! Great how you worked in both kinds.

Thank you Jennifer, I prefer the doll trolls over the ones on PS!

Your third verse made me smile. Lurking, always lurking to jump on someone. Whether they have unruly hair like the ones in your photo, or bald, they serve no useful purpose on a poetry site. I'll not allow them to annoy me, and I'm sure you won't either. lol

Your last paragraph is very important. I personally would ignore trolls. ~~
