Banking on the Tooth Fairy
I’m the beneficiary
of a stealthy, sneaking fairy
who leaves dollars every time I lose a tooth.
I expect another payday
since I’ve lost three teeth last Friday.
But I have some big expenses, so, in truth,
when I leave my toothy triad
for this furtive dental dryad
I may ask her if she has some loot to lend.
How I hope she’ll give me credit
for the nine I haven’t lost yet
’cause I need some extra cash to save and spend.
