Is there anyone worse than a dentist?
A dental surgeon
I think as I sit alone
Battling my nerves
As I listen to the patient next door
I ask the assistant
When he comes in
How soon after can I eat?
Oh right after!
Only your mouth will be numb
Not sure how that is possible
Past the gauze and the blood
Here’s an idea
For the prescription commercials
And medical assessments
I know that legally
You have to give the worst scenario
And optimistically
You want to give the best scenario
Why don’t we go off the data?
Your averages and your mediums
Now that would help me decide!
