Tell Me Why

To drool in the company of another
As she pokes and prods in your mouth

Talking gibberish and gobbledygook
While pulling your chin to the south

Then sticking a fist and cold metal
On your seemingly red-carpet tongue

Scoping things out like a treasure chest
As if probing a cushion for one

All the while expecting answers
While my mouth remains ajar

Why do these candid teeth cleaners
Take conversation that far?

Dr. Malice... how funny!

I think they are just talking to themselves really.

My husband had one named Dr. Payne. This was too funny, at first seemed like an awkward sexual encounter! Very clever stuff, Laurie, and nice reading it aloud, too. Amy
