Tooth deserves proper care

Last night met a wonderful girl child
She wore a pink kameez and always smiled
She recited rhymes and sang sweet song
It appeared that she knew me for long
The child happily told many amazing stories
The most stunning was about tooth fairies
She said how she pulled tooth herself
She moved the loose tooth without help
As she pulled her tooth like a dentist
Blood dropped on her clothing and wrist
She then put the tooth under her pillow
And waited for the tooth fairy to see her follow
I became very amazed by the child’s wit
I hope she will shine in life bit by bit
Now, let me turn to my own tooth story
I lost too many teeth and feel very sorry
Failed to sense the process of tooth decay
Consulted a dentist at a great delay
He compared my teeth with  reeds of harmonium
And vowed to present the case in a symposium
His humor gives me pain and pleasure
I regret for not taking timely care
I pray the teeth of the flower like girl
Will always shine like  pearl

Hi Zanuil. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for liking my poems. I am 77 years old and my teeth got so bad I wear dentures now. It is true like you said. I pray of the teeth of the flower girl will always shine like pearl. I pray that everyone has good teeth.
