What Happened to the Cute Doll Trolls?


What happened to the cute doll trolls?

I guess time always takes its toll.

Chubby, naked, coloured hair,

One time they were everywhere.


Now a troll is seen as bad,

Insulting others is a fad.

The Internet’s their pet domain,

Giving chatrooms a bad name.


Why can people be so cruel,

Calling everyone else a fool,

Telling stories, spreading lies,

Cowardly hiding in disguise?

what-happened-to-the-cute-doll-trolls

Trolling chatrooms just for fun,

Throwing insults on the run.

Fucking losers, nerds with guns,

Please excuse my stupid puns.


Why can’t people just be friends,

Chatting with no evil ends,

Talk about their lives and loves,

If they’re believers, God above?


Some people just have dark intent,

Maybe have nowhere to vent,

Fueled by jealousy and rage,

Humiliated at some stage.

So, they pick on those they see

As popular or worry-free.

It makes them feel as though they’re strong,

When in fact this is so wrong.


So, here’s to all you nasty trolls,

Stalkers, and the lurking dolls.

Get a life, and leave us be,

Your time is wasted, can’t you see?


What happened to the cute doll trolls?

I guess time always takes its toll.

Chubby, naked, coloured hair,

One time they were everywhere.

Yes, Flourish. Yes, that is a real worry. Thanks for reading.

FlourishAnyway from USA on February 14, 2018:

Once they were dolls but now is the real danger because the trolls are human. I agree with Frank.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 07, 2018:

Thank you Larry. So do I.

Larry Rankin from Oklahoma on February 07, 2018:

Wish things could just be carefree.

Always enjoy your poems.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 06, 2018:

Haha Shyron, You are funny. Your poetic comments always add to the value of a poem.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on February 06, 2018:

Once I collected those cute chubby troll dolls

Then I babysat and the troll dolls became drool dolls

One I thought was lost forever was found by the plumber

And he got paid for the babysitting chore

Some of the troll dolls walked out the door

Leaving purple, orange and green hair upon my floor

They must have left my country and become good and sore

And they are always calling me from a number that starts with “V”

That is how you know they are evil trolls when the number starts with V—20517090300003

Haha, Frank, that's hilarious! ROTFL . Thanks for the great comment.

Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on February 05, 2018:

@Frank: Even the hair is perfect! Never thought of that.

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on February 05, 2018:

yeah.. whatever did happen to those trolls? Well one got elected president of these United States.. Love the poem.. LOL

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 05, 2018:

I whole-heartedly agree, MsDora. "Get a life, and leave us be," indeed.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on February 04, 2018:

I have already forgotten about the doll trolls. Wish there were no human trolls to remember. "Get a life, and leave us be" and bring back the harmless dolls!

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 04, 2018:

Well, thank you MizB, I never expected this to be anyone's favourite of my poetry but both you and Val have said such so I am grateful. I guess it is just because I sat down a little angry at some online stuff I read and wrote it all in about 10 minutes. I guess there was feeling behind it and it touches on an important issue.

Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on February 04, 2018:

John, I think this is my favorite of your poems, too. At first the cute little troll photos attracted my attention, but then you got down to business. I think we've all been visited by the ugly trolls. They are all untalented losers, so they have to show their a$$e$ some way.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 04, 2018:

Cris, I think most of us had one or two of these dolls, boys and girls alike. They were much more preferable to the nasty, ugly trolls of today. Cheers.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 04, 2018:

Hi Chitrangada. Your comments are always appreciated, and yes, trolling is an important subject that needs to be addressed.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 04, 2018:

True Eric, a lot of things have gone now. Anything that reminds you to watch Monty Python must be good though...especially The Holy Grail.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 04, 2018:

Hello, Rasma. Thanks for reading and glad this rekindled some pleasant memories.

CrisSp from Sky Is The Limit Adventure on February 04, 2018:

Used to have these dolls too. They may look ugly and scary but certainly mean no harm unlike the trolls of today.

Good one John.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on February 04, 2018:

It’s an important subject, which you have addressed in this well expressed poem!

Insulting others is in no way acceptable and we must show our disapproval, whenever possible.

Well done and thanks for sharing!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 04, 2018:

So sad they fished to much and now all the trawlers are gone to. You remind me to watch Monty Python.

Wonderful weaving of commentary.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on February 04, 2018:

Enjoyed this. Had almost forgotten about these trolls. I used to enjoy them. Thank you for the poetic trip down memory lane.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 03, 2018:

Haha, John. Yes they used to be everywhere. Since the animated movie, I am sure a few new toys have appeared but I haven't seen them yet.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 03, 2018:

Glad there was a little surprise in there for you Linda. Thanks for reading and commenting.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 03, 2018:

Thank you, Bill. Yes, we used to have them hanging from the car mirror, on the end of pencils, etc. They seemed to pop up everywhere. Now I can't find one.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 03, 2018:

Shajqat, I couldn't agree more. Thank you for reading and supporting my stand.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 03, 2018:

Harish, I hate trolls and wish it could be stamped out. Unfortunately, I doubt that is possible.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 03, 2018:

Thanks for reading this Mary, and for your kind comment.

Faith-Hope-Love on February 03, 2018:

John, I was wondering the same thing whatever Happened to those trolls that we'd hang in the car or around the living room, etc. You have hit the query right on the head. Well done. Enjoyed this one thoroughly. John

Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on February 03, 2018:

Jodah, I did not (at first) see the direction this was going. Well done sir.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 03, 2018:

Nice commentary on society, John! Come to think of it, I never do see those little trolls anymore. All buried in a box in the basement, me thinks.

Shafqat Mushtaq on February 03, 2018:

Trolls are a grave concern and anyone touching the topic is undoubtedly doing a service to humanity.

Harish Mamgain from New Delhi , India on February 03, 2018:

Insulting others or trolling is to sink low. Some guys like it. I like your poem.

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on February 03, 2018:

Am glad you wrote your disapproval in a lovely poem. Somehow, because it is lyrical, it is fun to read.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 02, 2018:

Val - I always look forward to seeing a comment by you on one of my poems. Like you I always have some form of social commentary "lurking" behind my simple rhymes. Glad to hear this is one of your favourites from among my offerings.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 02, 2018:

Thank you, Hari. Much appreciated.

John Hansen (author) from Queensland Australia on February 02, 2018:

Thank you Chris, and for echoing my sentiments about such losers in our society.

Val Karas from Canada on February 02, 2018:

John---This is one of my favorite from your rich poetic opus---maybe because it was said in a spirit of some of my own satirical articles about phony folks parading around with their pathetic machismo.

Loved the rhymes too.

Chris Mills from Traverse City, MI on February 02, 2018:

We need to take away all online access by these f****** losers except one chat room where they can pick on each other.

Hi John, way to lead the charge against the forces of lurkness. Trolls used to be so cute.

Hari Prasad S from Bangalore on February 02, 2018:

Cool poem jodah.
