A chapter in the book Mama Said

Life's Not Always Roses

by Barb Hensongispsaca

My Mama had some great advice
about life's funny way.
When e'er she spoke, I ne'er thought twice
of what she had to say.

She told me life was never free,
some trials will hit me hard.
They're always things we do not see,
so we must be on guard.

T'will be some things we hate to do
but those we have to face.
Mixed with the candy comes the stew-
for those we have to brace.

My Mama said there is one trial
that everyone must brave-
the dental visits - 'cause our smile
is something that we crave.

Our fear of sitting in that chair,
submit to dentist's whim,
is likened to a dragon's lair
and our life looks quite grim.

We're poked and prodded, lectured to,
what does he hope to gain?
We're told to rinse ... it tastes like glue ...
then come the tools of pain.

"We can't fix this! We'll just pull that!"
"There's dentures planned for you!"
We can't object - our tongue's too fat
five sizes it just grew,

We're one tooth less, our mouth droops right,
and drool is running free.
Our hair's a mess, we are a sight,
and we just want to flee.
