For the Multinational Toy Manufacturers

by Daisy Hirst

Thank you TOMY, Matel, Bluebird, Fisherprice
Manhatten, Playmo and Tridias
For the small plastic things in life.

For those cones with Piglet popping out
Snaveleys and Squormies
Shoepeople and Stormtroopers,
Imitation Disney toys by Pisney
Called Alanadin and the Hunchback of Notting Hill,
Fluppets and Faniland,
I love my teletubby
It’s fleece is so red.

I love the plastic components that lock
Into little things for people to laugh at.

Thank you
For the small plastic things in life.
