I heard some bad news yesterday,
When mom pulled me aside,
I cringed and answered, "Geesh, NO WAY!"
Then came that scary ride.
She said the dentist would be glad,
For all my cavities,
More money in his pocket book,
Still, he'd put me at ease.
With just a shot of Novocain,
To help me feel no pain,
No sense for me to kick and scream,
What would I have to gain?
So, as he opened up my mouth,
And studied all around,
He couldn't figure out just why,
A jelly bean was found!
Then finding something coloured pink,
Now old with slimy goo,
I said it was some bubble gum,
Found underneath my shoe!
He finally filled all cavities,
But worked 'til almost noon,
He warned, "Lay off the sweets, my friend,
Or you'll be toothless soon!"
Mom scolded "No more candy,
It is veggies from now on,
A carrot stick instead of cake,
Your sweet tooth days are gone!"
