Lil’ Punkinhead

Hey, little baby,
what’s on your mind
besides a leafy, smiling pumpkin?

Are you fretting
over your first kiss
the Who and When and Where of it all?

Are you conflicted about
which college to attend—
Fighting Scot, or not?

Are you worried whether Nonnie
will be there with her smiles
on the day that you are married?

Or are you just trying to hold on
to the pacifier
in your mouth?
