One fateful day Kay’s mother took her into a building lobby,
They took turns pinching and twisting her little body.
They made her stand in positions more and more bizarre,
Then they made her repeat them daily at a thing they called a barre.
They put her on a diet, they said her wrists they did appal.
And they made her wear a strange garment, a tutu it was called,
She danced her first role as a friend of La Fille mal Gardee.
After she'd been made to join a sinister group, the corps de ballet,
The critics said of her performance, ‘Better you don’t do’,
In a fit of spite someone put ground glass, ground glass in her toeshoes.
She took the elastics from her ballet things,
Stitched them together and hanged herself in the wings.
