"Open Wide!"

I went to the Dentist today,

for treatment of dental decay,

but the shrill of the drill,

and extortionate bill,

In future, will keep me away.

-

I'd rather give up all the sweets -

The chocolatey, sugary treats.

Though they're lovely to munch

between breakfast and lunch,

It's those the enamel depletes.

-

So now that I'm free of the gaps,

thanks to numerous crowns and caps,

I'll give up the toffees,

and sugary coffees,

and relinquish the Gingersnaps.

-

There'll be no more dental cement,

or reasons for me to lament,

about not taking care

of the teeth that are there -

It's harder to cure than prevent!
