Candy for the Baby

The less than redoubtable Ms. Hicks
returning to the house
will try to help the child play pick-up sticks.
He cries, “Today, I plan to dispense
with sticks more than just a few,
but before I do,
I demand to fondle you.”
In the corner, drools a leering Pence.
Ms. Hicks says, “Oh, cherished child,
from hence go thence
and do what you wish to do.
I am yours through and through.”
Echoing the Butler, the First Madam
says, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”
