In your later years
when I'm long dead
and your gums start to recede
and the nerves are exposed, raw
will you remember me?
Will you think back to the day
when I said you were better for me
than Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothpaste?

Of course, technology moves on
so maybe by then
this dental hassle will be a thing of the past
which'll be good
even though
it would be nice to be remembered

~ ~ ~

On your toes
Jump from trouble


Doesn't matter
if you're wrong
Doesn't matter
until those syrupy tentacles
leech into you

Dance happy
and long
