Very Much For Flossing - Poem by Bill Grace

Modern life is a fast paced zoo and
Our teeth being part of this calculus too
Failure to floss is an issue for
There is a struggle for better quality of years
Which is balanced off against time demands and
The pull of fears.

For logevity's sake I advocate slow rising so
Before morning's most early light
The dark conceals the grissly sight
Of this old boy flossing.

It starts my day in a very nice way
Helping my teeth do better and that
Nice young dentist with no hairs of gray
Has finally come to have his say
In this gruesome matter of flossing.
