The Doll

from Something's Awry by Sterling Witt



Now that I’ve acquired a piece of your hair,
your essence is mine and nothing is fair!

I’ll make a doll that looks like you,
to stab and poke. You won’t have a clue!

You’ll bumble and fumble through your life,
I’ll see to it that it turns to strife!

Nothing will go the way that it ought.
You have foes, a curse they bought!

Oh, what a deal! Oh, what a day!
I’ll make you out of sticks and clay!

I’ll work the doll like a piece of dough.
For you, your life will turn to woe!

I’ll put you through a wicked test,
pushing a pin inside your chest.
How’s that feel? Like cardiac arrest?

All you can mutter is “Help!” And “Why?”
“Lord, not me! I’m too young to die!”

I couldn’t help but laugh and giggle,
watching your body squirm and wiggle!

I see it all in my crystal ball.
Your pathetic life just seems to stall.

I slice the button from its eye.
Now you’re blind and don’t know why!

I push a pin into your heel.
What good times I am able to steal!

All you can do is trip and fall.
Fetal position, cry and ball!

I toss the bones and do a chant,
while you wallow, curse and rant!

Nothing you do will do the trick.
I do what I can to make you sick!

How about a boil, a rash, or a cyst?
I am your doctor, here to assist!

I prick your arm, leg, and head.
Like it or not, you'll soon be dead.

The deathbed blues have got you down.
It's time for you to move out of town.

It won't be long til you ride in a hearse.
My work is done, I've completed the curse.

I bury the doll deep in the dirt.
Look on the bright side, I've ended your hurt.

Like all things come to expire,
it’s time for you to finally retire.

Oh, what a deal! Oh, what a day!
It’s much too fun to have it my way!
