Capped and Tapped

I don't know what's underneath
My capped and costly gold crowned teeth
Once cavity riddled and quite sore
I feel no pain though very poor
Capped and tapped I should have ventured
To get them pulled and not indentured

    Saw this at the beginning of 2013. It's still great.(I think I am in a territory of poetry that I must have been seeing a lot of back in the beginning of the year)

    I attest to all you've said. My retirement would be in better shape if I never saw a dentist. They pull money as well as they pull teeth!

    Thank you Jack. That reminds me of a top ten list of tell tale signs that one is getting old. One of the items was: You know you're getting old when you and your teeth no longer sleep together.

    indeed, all the dentistry work on our teeth and still we really don't know what is going on underneath all those fillings and crowns. Every time i see a dentist I learn something new about teeth!! Nice one.

    Jon thanks for the laugh this morning. A clever rhyme. Choppers we need but not the fees. I needed a smile, getting ready to go to the hospital for cervical surgery, my 4th. Warm Smiles Connie

    Lol, too funny, Jon. I like "I feel no pain though very poor". That would put someone in the poor house. I hope to keep all mine. We shall see. I don't care much to go to the dentist. Go there every six month and that is enough! Cute poem!
