Bobo Doll

Sucker punched, she is flattened

smashed to the pavement

time and time again.

Leaden-hearted yet buoyant

she rights herself

painted with plasticine smile.

Returns to proscribed place

submits to sanctioned

crushing anew.

 

Behind the mask she wonders

when will she be permitted to

stand her ground

assert her humanity

shout “Enough!”?
