Chew The Fat

What Doctor Tran, my great dentist, told me, I unhappily confess
"Stan," he said, "periodontally, you're a total mess"
When toothless, my mouth will resemble a bird-like beak
Biting poems need be written then with only tongue in cheek

I fear with all my teeth a-missing
I'll say goodbye to future kissing
No lady will endure a kiss adventure
With a guy who wears an upper denture

I know I'll forever be bristling at
My lost ability to chew the fat
Will I ever find myself eschewing
All my friends 'cause of my non-chewing

No longer will I be in style
Just a toothless guy with a dentured smile
It seems what the future holds for me
Will be determined dentally

Whatever you've got or not got, you can still smile even if you're a toothless wonder and you can certainly bring a smile to all of us here.
