Bad Barbie

Bad Barbie 
Oh Barbie's gone bad!
Is that sad? 
Or a reflection of society? 
Is it right that we're brain washed by sight, 
That women should be a pink perfection, 
Groomed merely for men s delectation, 
Barbie's so bad! 

Oh Barbies gone mad! 
Is that sad? 
Or is it just a reflection of true life, 
A job, a mother, a lover, a wife, 
A world of stresses, 
Not just pretty dresses, 
Barbie's so mad!   

Barbies had her day!
There's more to play, 
Than pushing stereotypical roles, 
Society changes, so do goals, 
Women are the spine of humanity, 
Peace,love and human equality,
Are the roles that should promoted 
Barbie's had her day
Pink and Fluffy s been demoted!
Barbies So bad !
