Unending Talkability!


My grandson started school just the other day;
The teacher said to me, "He has a lot to say."
I asked if he was trouble, she looked me in the eye,
"His anecdotes are brilliant." She said with a sigh.

I'm watching television, there's a film with lots of fights,
He enthuses every scene with childlike delight.
"Granddad why's he hiding in that hollow over there?
I'll get him with my laser gun." I give him a withering stare.

Unfazed he carries on with intrepid fortitude;
Shooting all the baddies and telling them he's good.
His brain is lightening fast; so fast that he has got
The answer to the storyline before they start the plot.

By now I've got quite angry but his enigmatic smile
Turns away my malice; that lad's got lots of guile:
"Granddad you're terrific, I love those masks you wear,
Making funny faces and tearing out your hair."

He has a million questions for every single scene,
I'd tell him to button up his lip but that would be too mean.
So I quietly sit there fuming, waiting for him to stop;
There is only one solution! Buy him sweets from the local shop.
