Bed Time

Two girls in nightgowns.
There’s Grandpa’s special knock.
Time for hide and seek,
the older sister says, I’ll count

first. Grandpa walks in
jiggling the lock to “talk.”
Two girls in nightgowns.
Grandpa’s special knock

then he’s in, his hand down
his pants pulling out his cock
flaccid growing rigid as he rocks
and moans. Her younger sister hidden.
Two girls in nightgowns.
