Barbie Girl

I am not a Barbie doll.

Yes, I am white,

I have all my ribs,
all of my liver,
all of my intestines.

I do not have DD boobs,
flawless skin,
straight teeth,
a teeny-tiny waist,
a BMI so low I don’t have a period,
blondness from a bleach bottle.

I am not a Barbie doll.

I am white,

blond by my MC1R gene,

not skinny at all.

I am not a Barbie doll.

I am a normal teenage girl:
