16. Ol' blue eyes.

Barbie & Ken came round:

bigging up their

injection-moulded lives


I overheard her & Sindy

in the kitchen –

turns out Barbie’s been

making out with Action Man

 – fell for his swivelling eagle eyes

& Ken’s been chucking his toys out the pram


but to be honest

I can’t really blame ol’ blue eyes

 – she’s a real doll


just as long as he doesn’t

come sniffing round Sindy,


 – perish the thought –

she reeks of butyl benzyl phthalate.
