I Figured It Out, And It's Not Pretty - Poem by Sandra Dodd

I figured it out
Really a long time ago
but just this dawn
the words dawned on me
what you have been up to

When you come and visit
your really three not two
You bring that plastic dummy
you used as visual aide
when you placed your order
from the Lord at heaven's gate,
just to make sure
that He gave you
exactly what you want.
Nothing wrong with
wanting greatness, but
Assuredly I can say
when you place me next
to your plastic woman,
I outshine her in spades!

Though she may be thinner,
have the perfect skin,
she is utterly empty
hollow from within.
Though her behavior perfect,
never an embarrassment,
her head is surely empty,
void of an independent thought.
Her soul free of stain? That is true,
because it is completely missing,
incapable of loving you

So set her up here next to me again
lets have a competition
Lets see who comes to visit her
I bet she doesn’t make the first cut
of the audition for the company
of people real and true.
