Ow! I’m in fucking agony;
Why must my own body, do this to me?
Hurting like a burn, to the third degree;
Please take this pain, away from me.
I have to go and see the dentist,
But I do fear him so.
He’s going to cure my agony,
The only way I know.
By jabbing a sharp needle, into my gums;
He says the anesthetic, will send them numb.
But we both know he lies,
For I can see the shock of my pain in his eyes.
The anesthetic wore away too soon,
He had so much work to do.
I can’t stand this pain without relief,
But now he’s going to take my tooth.
I tell him stop, the pain is too much,
But he can’t hear me for there’s a drill in my mouth.
So I pass out and he calls a doctor,
Another so-called, pain reliever.
He wakes me up, after giving me drugs,
To remedy, the dentists work.
He calls another dentist, to finish the job,
But they’re all sadists, please make them stop.
My teeth are so bad, because my fear scares me so much,
That these so called experts, I no longer trust.
But this work needs doing, I have no choice,
So I’ll just sit back and he starts the drill.
Please let me die, I begin to cry,
I’m in agony, I cannot deny.
This painful antidote, is a modern day joke;
A dark age torture that has never evolved.
