Crash Test Dummies are here with a purpose
They ensure our safety so we may live
From birth they already were a sure curse
With multiple injuries or a short life to give
They are the first to tryout a new car
Or bike, and then buckled down for safety
Set off to high speeds but not very far
Seated in twos or an entire family
A lucky bunch survive through
Some get vigorously ripped apart
Though each limb gets replaced like new
As they continue again from the start
Where do these dummies eventually go?
The ones that are 'injured" or shredded away
Perhaps recycled at a departmental store?
Or sent back to the mechanic...
to face another sad, crash-test day?
