A Trip to the Dentist

“You keep up with the brushing,

At least twice a day?

And have you done your flossin?”

Wergly wergly werg


“You keep good teeth“, he said to me

“But your gums recede.

How hard is your toothbrush?”

Wergly wergly werg


“You look well tanned for wintertime;

Have you been away?

Wergly wergly wergly werg

“Malta, do you say?”


“We went there two years ago

(Lower left 3, please)

Any problems bitin?”

Wergly wergly werg


Wergly wergly wergly werg

“That happens, I’m afraid;

Moreso in your later years.”

Wergly wergly werg


“So all OK I’m pleased to say”

No treatment?”  “No, that’s that.

See you next in six months time;

Look forward to our chat”.

This is funny, and yet almost too accurate to be funny. It made me smile big time.

Another enjoyable bit of whimsy and good observation John. I finally ended up with a dentist I liked, but Letitia had to go back to Spain. Such a pity.

Thanks Greg.
It certainly made for some of the easier rhymes!

I don't think I've ever met a dentist I have warmed to. They seem to be rather a smug, superior bunch. Perhaps that is because they are used to no-one being able to give it back...
An amusing observation, John.

This is so true, John! They have us in their power. It really made me laugh
