DENTAL COURT

DENTAL COURT

A Poem by M.Babu
"

An experimental journey to Dental Court.

"
We’ve commenced this meeting,

Between the Teeth.

To reach a conclusion,

Over which.

The Tongue’s foulness,

Has harmed us so.

Deliberating insult;

Turning friend to foe.

 

Sir Incisor, first on the stand,

Said as much, looking around.

“On the night of the fourth,

At the helm of glee.

The accused Mr. Tongue,

Enraged with greed.

Insulted our friend,

With a horrid word,

Left me in shock,

The word was ****.”

 

(Groans of Displeasure/Discomfort)

 

“ORDER!! ORDER!!”

Called Premolar, the Judge.

“We now call Canine,

To the Stand!”

 

Lady Canine a Tooth,

With utter respect.

Looked sharp and stunning,

In Her Enamel Dress.

“I bring testimony,

In front of thee.

Of another incident,

Of discontent.


On the night of the Tenth,

Dishonorable Tongue,

Initiated a fight.

That cracked

Master’s skull.

The word he used…

I felt so betrayed…

Caused me sleepless nights

And some Tooth Decay-”

(Enraged gasps were heard as she lifted her bandaged root)

“I’d rather die

Than recount THAT word.

But I’ll try my best,

He said…

Mo…the…r….*….*”


(OUTRAGE in the Dental Court)

Canine was trembling,

In a delirious manner.

Thus called the judge,

For the Medic Molar.

“You are free,

From Dental Duty,

Ma’am.

Your testimony has

Been duly heard.”

 

And as Canine was briskly

Flossed away.

Premolar racked his

Weighty brain.

He wasn’t long,

In this thoughtful state.

“I’ve come up with,

Fit Punishment!”

 

“As Presiding Judge,

Over this case.

I thus find Tongue,

GUILTY of Distaste!!”

(Thunderous Claps From the Toothy Crowd)

“I find Fit Punishment,

For Tongue to be.

A unanimous bite,

From all the TEETH!”

 

Master,

Busily chewing some gum.

Felt tremendous pain,

From biting his Tongue.

 

****!!!

I apologize for the length. I was getting tired of my boring poetry and felt like I needed something highly unordinary. Hope I delivered this exceptionally? Please, I do need honest thoughts.

I like this piece. I found it humorous and it seemed to tell a story (I assume that's why it was so long). This didn't take long to read at all and I found it very amusing. Although I did think that there were certain areas where it didn't rhyme and I got confused as to what the rhyme scheme way (if any), but that could just be me. Anyways, Great Work!!

Brilliant, clever, intense (intentional pun tho not very clever) .. laughed and frowned alternately. The erratic meter is/was like an erratic heartbeat, the kind you feel when in that dreaded chair. Dialogue exceptionally funny, no matter the length. Could make a novella if you had the urge and patience, would make great reading in the dentist's waiting room!!
