Barbie has survived ups and downs,
Been through 10 U.S. Presidents,
In and out of fashion trend gowns,
Doll of ages, Mattel presents.
How 'bout Barbie fighting the fight
Of cancer just like in real life?
A being bald Barbie just might
Encourage some who face such strife.
Two real cancer survivors did
Submit the idea, but Mattel
Said outside ideas are forbid.
Must be inside for it to sell.
So bring the outsiders inside.
Make Barbie bald and beautified.
