the lesson

lost my two front teeth 
in a fall 
this past fall
put two shiny new Washington quarters 
under my pillow 
to get replacements

Daddy told me 
that his dental plan 
will replace
only up to one Roosevelt
in a twelve month period
if at all

he said that this condition
was a result of a conspiracy in our modern society 
driven 
by corrupt, exploiting and greedy
tooth fairies in expensive blue suits and white coats
driving BMWs and Mercedes
drinking lattes and cappuccinos
under the banners of humanity, fairness and truth
and the stars and stripes 
cheating on their spouses
putting their assets in accounts outside the reach 
of the IRS
and who would do in their mother for a Roosevelt

    On a more positive note that additional air flow creates the perfect conditions to be an extraordinary whistler!
