Tooth Story : Dr Syed Md Zainul Abedin

Last night met a wonderful girl child
She wore a pink kameez and always smiled
She recited rhymes and sang sweet song
It appeared that she knew me for long

The child happily told many amazing stories
The most stunning was about tooth fairies
She said how she pulled tooth herself
She moved the loose tooth without help
As she pulled her tooth like a dentist
Blood dropped on her clothing and wrist
She then put the tooth under her pillow
And waited for the tooth fairy to see her follow

I became very amazed by the child’s wit
I hope she will shine in life bit by bit

Now,let me turn to my own tooth story
I lost too many teeth and feel very sorry
Failed to sense the process of tooth decay
Consulted a dentist at a great delay
He compared my teeth with reeds of harmonium
And vowed to present the case in a symposium
His humor gives me pain and pleasure
I regret for not taking timely care

I pray the teeth of the flower like girl
Will always shine like pearl
