Musings of a Mannequin
In this window you can see
The different clothes they place on me.
On a beach today I stand
My feet all covered by the sand.
I wear a swimming cosy cool
The men they ogle and they drool.
And ladies look at me and pine
They wish their figures were like mine.
Tomorrow it is bridal wear
Star struck couples bound to stare.
The other day a kid looked in
And to the window pressed his chin
Then at me his tongue he poked
He got a slap and nearly choked.
My clothes have gone and now I’m nude
Everyone will think I’m rude.
But with horror I am gripped
I’m fairly old with some parts chipped.
I think they’re taking me away
They’ll put a new one on display
And to the basement I’ll be sent
With all the others cracked and bent.
If I could cry you’d see and hear
My sobbing and one single tear.
