Adieu Dental Floss And Toothbrush

Adieu Dental Floss And Toothbrush elegy

Uploaded by Matthew Harris

All those years I underwent
orthodontic care for naught
cuz profound gum recession
and bone dissolution found me fraught
with an angst riddled necessity
whence dentures bought
or will soon bring relief,
where financial cost to me = aught.

though grievous o’er a diet of baby food –
rubs raw rib bill bit
Subject: query (tummy eldest sister)
now answered – with true grit
sans state ‘o me health of body, mind and spirit
yea…yea…with the following poe whet tics git writ.

Re: cap ma current day coup page with a collage
of words that best attempt to convey how one feels
after a half dozen teeth removed, yes, that day
of departure fur remaining lower teeth transpired
many yesterdays ago with sore gums as a testament
to grin and bear final surrender of bottom choppers.

twas not with glee this dear bro
did accept fate, and now twitters like crow
adjusting new sans parabolic learning curve
to talk where speech akin to blob of dough
being formless, yet with gumption resignation
to these extractions did flow
into psyche (with twinge of accursed displease), boot go
to University of Pennsylvania Dental School and heave hoe

this scrivener and regular joe
tried to find a silver lining y know
removal of upper teeth from those
less than five centimeters be low

scheduled in about forty weeks ago plus deux fortnight
will find me unable to reef er to the skin of my teeth,
yea this circumstance doth suck n bite
‘though once dentures fitted, thee psychological gloom
(per maxillofacial situation)
with relief insurance picked up tab didst resignation alight.

if hi ignored the grim state of vital accessories to chew
this har chap likely to experience additional
molars, cuspids, canines…falling out though few
remained upon embarkation per painful turn of events, grew
ling a smidgen less worse than getting tossed out hoo

chee coot chee mama in2 the freezing brutal cold
by none other than Donald trump eskimo master of a royal igloo
while sarah n aid ding howling winds
of n arctic monkey shape shifting
into a polar vortex imp sear pale in me
would probably find me in some deleterious
state of health thru and thru.

other than the above matthew scott harris feels great
well…. on the bright side – no need to brush nor floss,
when ma mouth opened ajar –
bing temporarily totally toothless – aye will hate
hence moost inclined to master ventriloquism
hoop fully finding work around
to of void beak comb ming irate.
