Parents’ whine

Line 9
Any given day
In the crowd
A baby
With a sucker
‘Tétine’ we call it in French
Téton in French being the word for
Nipple
Anyway
All babies
Seem to have them suckers
Nowaday
A baby
Doesn’t have much
Means of expression
He can smile
He can cry
He can babble
And that’s about
It
So when you put
A sucker
Into a baby’s mouth
You just tell the kid
Plain and clear
SHUT THE FUCK UP
The kid shuts up
Of course
Suck suck suck
Looking dumb
And parents
Never learn
The infinity
Of nuances
Coming with
Cries
Babbles
And smiles
They never learn the language
And Mom and Pop don’t know
how to communicate
With their own baby
Anymore unless
He’s listening to them
Suck suck suck
How comfortable that is
Later on
Parents wonder
Why little Johnny put a shotgun
Into his mouth
Or their’s
So give these suckers
To your babies
And they WILL
Shut up
Like the neutered dog or cat
Parents
Nowaday
Are so fond of
