daddy can’t wait

don’t babble,
your scrabble tiles
or else exchange themscrabble-quiet
i don’t have all night
yes you are adorable
your game skills,
though, deplorable
playing with a chatterbox
has killed my appetite
barbie, doll,
i gotta say
you talk more than
your sobriquet
your tiles are on the floor

never mind,
let’s play a hand
of something that
you understand
like 5-card stud or
7-card no peek
we’ll try this game
when you turn four
next week
