Happy Tuesday and hugs to all.

I had to visit the dentist yesterday, Ugh!. Reminded me of one of my favouite poems. Enjoy!

I Wish I'd Looked After My Teeth
by Pam Ayres
 

Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth,
And spotted the perils beneath,
All the toffees I chewed,
And the sweet sticky food,
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth.

I wish I'd been that much more willin'
When I had more tooth there than fillin'
To pass up gobstoppers,
From respect to me choppers
And to buy something else with me shillin'.

When I think of the lollies I licked,
And the liquorice allsorts I picked,
Sherbet dabs, big and little,
All that hard peanut brittle,
My conscience gets horribly pricked.

My Mother, she told me no end,
"If you got a tooth, you got a friend"
I was young then, and careless,
My toothbrush was hairless,
I never had much time to spend.

Oh I showed them the toothpaste all right,
I flashed it about late at night,
But up-and-down brushin'
And pokin' and fussin'
Didn't seem worth the time... I could bite!

If I'd known I was paving the way,
To cavities, caps and decay,
The murder of fiIlin's
Injections and drillin's
I'd have thrown all me sherbet away.

So I lay in the old dentist's chair,
And I gaze up his nose in despair,
And his drill it do whine,
In these molars of mine,
"Two amalgum," he'll say, "for in there."

How I laughed at my Mother's false teeth,
As they foamed in the waters beneath,
But now comes the reckonin'
It's me they are beckonin'
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me teeth.

Rhonda's thoughtful thought of the day: If you love someone, set them free.  You will know your love is true if they don't press charges.

Sorry to hear that Hippie. Stay warm and snug sweetie. Here's anothe Pam Ayres poem to cheer you up.

I Am A Bunny Rabbit

by Pam Ayres

I am a bunny rabbit,
Sitting in me hutch.
I like to sit down this end.
I don’t care for that end, much.

I hope tomorrow’s Thursday,
‘Cause with a little luck,
As far as I remember,
That’s the day they pass the buck!
