white teeth

Written for:  The Twiglets #96 – “white as teeth”

White as your teeth are now,
they still should not glow in the dark.

Ya say ya want yer teeth
white as those pearlies
of famous actors. Well,
step right up, and try a
bottle of Dr. White’s Teeth
Bleaching Solution. That’s
right, folks, for a limited
time only, we are offerin’
one bottle at $10.00, and
two bottles at just $20.00!
Dr. White’s Teeth Bleaching
Solution will not only
leave yer teeth gleamin’,
but at the same time, bleach
out all your cavities. Folks,
yer teeth are gonna be
so white, you’ll be able
to see right through ’em!
Step right up. Hurry, hurry,

There once was a man from Podunk
whose green teeth were rotted as junk
referred to a surgeon
who believed in submersion
the chump woke up toothless in a magician’s trunk.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Yessiree – let me offer you a bridge in Brooklyn – that Burrough don’t need ’em all. 😉

    I wonder if that mage could whip up a pair of wooden choppers for the guy from Podunk? 🙂
