Aside from politics and religion

there is one topic that's shy of discussion

and that is TEETH,

the grand parade of them

or the sorry state of them.


Decisions on their fate, of

refurbishment or a dental plate,

are often made in the safer skull

where the brain begins to calculate

costs that seem to escalate. 


A full set of gnashers

brings out the flashers

like the Rolling Stones

still making old bones.


Sad to say my quota has fallen

I make the best of 'em

having lost the rest of 'em,

and despite the ads


you can't whiten gaps like highland maps,

so for the foreseeable future 

watch this space.

Thanks Hugh for finding this one of mine. I actually gave a copy to my dentist! I'm pleased to say he didn't get the needle.

HI folks. I'm gutted about the Hampsteads at the moment, and feel no better writing this. Thanks for your comments though. Sorry to trigger your problem, New Shoes. I think if I was a horse I might have been put down by now. Thanks for your liking.

That's pragmatic Col. May I nevertheless suggest a yearly checkup? I've had the windup ever since my dentist went private.

Thanks Pat. One needs a rounded approach and wit helps to get things in proportion - the teeth certainly aren't.

Thanks for the like Brian!

Please, Suki no developments at exhorbitant prices, if you please. Thanks for the original ideas though!

Dentists too. There's a hot topic!

Nice humour too - helps take us into the weekend. I suppose soon we will have virtual 3d holographic teeth, with free Wi-Fi..

Teeth, forgive my language, but fucking teeth. Obviously it's a sore subject with me as well, and I'm still young. If only my parents warned me about this...
