1552 – The Gift of Brushing

The Gift of Brushing
Really, though, it’s a gift for the rest of us.

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.
