Poem 65: Chagrin and bare it

(A nonsense poem!)

God blessed me with bad teeth,
a whole mouthful.
That the few left are good for chewing
is somewhat douthful.

Shut up and look at the camera!
Watch the birdie! Smile! Say cheese!

I shall chagrin and bare it.

I s’pose I could suck soup
up through a straw.
That way there will be no need
to gnaw at awl.

Shut up and look at the camera!
Watch the birdie! Smile! Say cheese!

I shall chagrin and bare it.

The thing about gaps in the gums –
One can’t eat steak,
but then again there ain’t
no toofs to ache.

Shut up and look at the birdie!
Watch the camera! Smile! Say cheese!

I shall chagrin and bare it.

    I loved the play on the ‘chagrin’. Usually, people with a chagrin dare not grin at cameras (or grim poems about their smiles). I suppose getting those fixed can cost a bomb (personal experience) so I’ll recuse myself from grinning right here.

I delight in having my dull life coloured by your intelligent perceptions, your wit, and your vivacity.
