Even at 50, she still is looking pretty good. That is a great picture. Thanks.

Your head's a little hollow
And your skin is hard and cold
You can't stand up on your own two legs
You're often bought and sold
You've had a hundred different jobs
Your boyfriend was a turkey
Yet women over fifty will still envy you
Because your breasts are perky

It's been years since Ken left. She had to sell the gas guzzling Chevy and most of her wardrobe.

James Parker said...

Lol, Michael. And Steve, since we're on Ken's case...


Fifty years ago, I was really quite the rage
Showing off my perfect form, on many a dollhouse stage.

The pride of little girls, from The Yukon to Brazil,
I'm still around, spreading joy, tho a little over the hill

I'm not the doll I once was, that's true in any case
But it was living with that Ken, that put wrinkles on my face

Well, I didn't realize an image of a Barbie doll would be so popular with the men:)

(poem by Therese L. Broderick of Albany, NY, USA. Poet turns fifty this year.)


Like me, born in the same year,
she has a Facebook page.
If asked nicely, she might
let me be her friend. Then
I could send wall-to-wall
birthday greetings, share photos
of my cupcake and only present.
I could inquire politely
about Ken -- how's he doing?
what's he up to? Is he still
as handsome as ever?
Day to day, we would keep track
of one another's status. Hers,
always the same : ageless
and desired. Mine, even today
just the odd old friend.
She can call me Midge.

Yikes, that photo made me do a kind of mental double-take! Brilliant picture. I think Meandering Micheal has it spot-on!
