Tooth Story

Tooth Story

A Poem by zainul
"

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

Definitely a message that includes everyday observations & concerns, but something that most writers never think to write about! Nice originality! I like the contrast between the child losing a tooth in the natural course of growing up & the older person having lost too many teeth to decay, etc. I used to have recurring nightmares that all my teeth would fall out, so I was faithful about taking care of my teeth. Fortunately, I have all my own teeth at age 60. Your poem makes me even more thankful for this. Thanks for sharing a unique perspective!

*smiles* this is an amazing and a very cute 'tooth story' I've come across this far.I don't really know if those tooth fairies exist, but I'm sure if they do exist, they might be giggling and smiling I awe fir the wonderful teeth story you've written, that tells us so much about them...And yes, teeth are precious no matter what one's age is..They kinda make our smiles way more noticeable than we can ever can! Also they make us look prettier 😊

PS: get a new artificial tooth for you too, for the reasons I've stated above (just a suggestions) 😜😊

Thankyou for sharing this piece of yours, it was wonferdul reading your work after these many years, my friend, Zainul 😊 hope you've been good all these days..And missed me a bit😉😀.

Your poem made me smile(showing all the gaps in my teeth!) It is a timely reminder for us all, to take care of what we have. But, sadly, it seems we have to get old to realise that! best wishes to the little girl.

This made me laugh, but I am sorry your teeth are in such poor shape. I take good care of my teeth and go to the dentist regularly, but still I have had crowns and root canals and bridges.

I too prya the teeth of this little girl will always shine.

Indeed teeth are a priceless treasure, for when they decay, they cannot rebuild themselves.

yes, somehow that humor doesn't feel good within the mouth, when we suffer the pain....
