Well, I’ve put it off now long enough
It’s time to bite the bullet
It’s now up to the jawsmith
to fill it in or pull it?
It started with a twinge
then cranked up to an ache
so now I’m in the dentist chair
with goggles on and cape
I involuntarily stiffen up
with more spit than I can swallow
will I have any teeth - when they’ve finished with me?
will I be in work tomorrow?
I try to think of calm things
and try and remember to breathe
It’s the same thing every 6 months
to clean and repair my teeth
My gums are now receding
my teeth more cream than white
I may invest in some whitener
so I glow in the dark at night 😁
Holding the chair so tightly
like a scary white knuckle ride
dribbling like a baby
from a mouth incredibly wide
I must keep up my appointments
put aside any fear or caution
as I have these reoccurring nightmares
that I’ve morphed…. into Les Dawson?
