The Barbie And The Fish

When we saw you cry that day
when your goldfish passed away
we thought it was amusing
seeing you crying

Please forgive me
it was wrong, I agree
I know we should have given you a hug but of course instead
we ripped off the Barbie’s head
and you cried for that doll we had “killed”
while we sat there thrilled

So once again I am sorry for making you cry
but you have to admit it was funny when you said good-bye
to the Barbie and the fish.
