Flag Maker Betsy Ross

It is said the first flag maker was Ms. Betsy Ross
Was also said she could do well with some dental floss
As one can imagine twas because she ran out of thread
She forgot to order it because she didn't take her meds

    So SHE WAS THE ONE WHO INVENTED DENTAL FLOSS! Oh, I get it!! Great idea, Carols. I bet Bob was slapping his leg over this one..the more insight into the person's soul, the better the clerihew. Great job here. Love, GWendolen

    Let's see Meds, Flags, Dental Floss (Funny) What kind of med was it? I guess she could have done it faster with a med... Now the teeth had the thread in them because she used them for sissors... I get it... Good show!

    Still I don't know about Ms. Betsy Ross, but it's sure if a patient does not take medicine in time, he or she forgets and run out of thread. Lovely penned my friend, Thanks for your wishes, bl
