From Betty
by Lola Ridge

My doll Janie has no waist

and her body is like a tub with feet on it.

Sometimes I beat her

but I always kiss her afterwards.

When I have kissed all the paint off her body

I shall tie a ribbon about it

so she shan't look shabby.

But it must be blue--

it mustn't be pink--

pink shows the dirt on her face

that won't wash off.
