Note: What follows is historical fact
though you may find it more than that.
Ancient Romans, for teeth hygiene,
brushed and rinsed with human urine.
Portuguese was thought the finest
because it made teeth the whitest.
Even the poet Catullus praised it
but never brushed his teeth with it.
And if a Roman ran out of it at home
there’s always his/her homemade own.
