The Truth About Our Friend
You’re the kindest. You’re so clever.
You’re our buddy. You’re our pal,
and we hope we’re friends forever,
but your breath is really foul
You’re the coolest one among us.
You’re the best of all our chums,
but we’re pretty sure there’s fungus
growing in between your gums.
You’re so honest. You’re so trusting,
but we hate to smell you speak.
Oh, good grief! Your mouth’s disgusting
and your dental odors reek!
You’re so orally unpleasant
but we want to keep you near.
Here’s a toothbrush as a present
for the friend we find so dear.
Thursdays are dog days!
