Don't Read This

Somewhere inside us lie's the truth. Deep down inside a wisdom tooth. But then the dentist plucks it out. And leaves your head filled up with doubt. Have you ever wondered what it means. When dentist looks at x-ray screens. And then conclude there's just no hope. As you ask if he can save it, he say's nope. A judge decides your punishment. And that your teeth are just for rent. And all your thoughts go up in smoke. Losing your wisdom is no joke. But we know that it's just a myth. That it has nothing to do with. A sense of rational or brains. But rather just relieving pains. Until we look beyond belief. In fantasy in a clovers leaf. We're left to wonder what it means. When dentist's look at x-ray screens.

Hello Robert, I looked at your titled poem and wondered if i should read it, sure enough I did. I often wonder what the dentist really sees on the x-ray of our teeth. Have a nice day my friend.

Your title made me smile and drew me in and I discovered the 'whole tooth' and nothing but the 'tooth' about dental x rays:-) Great humour Robert:-) hugs Jan xx

Now of COURSE we have to look when you say NOT to read this!!! I enjoyed this , Robert. This is how I felt when they were staring and staring at my mammogram a few years back. Yikes. What a terrible hopeless feeling as the test after test process begins.
