If the rumors are true,
and my mom is right,
then all my precious teeth,
will fall out late tonight.
She’s tried to warn me,
even my dentist, too,
that if I don’t brush my teeth,
I’ll have no teeth left to chew!
But I’m a busy kid,
No time for dentists or drills,
so I built my own machine,
with all the latest toothbrushing frills!
It’s got a mighty motor,
to make all things go,
with pumps and a few pulleys,
albeit, half are for show.
There’s a beaker for water,
and a can of laughing gas,
A flask filled with fluid I can’t pronounce,
so don’t even ask.
And I attached a round mirror,
that makes it easy to see,
my toothpaste dispenser,
which is ice cream flavored, obviously!
And sure, there’s a big needle,
but don’t be dismayed,
it shoots out strawberry jam,
that’s organically homemade.
So in closing I assure you,
and to ease my mother’s fear,
my teeth will be just fine,
thanks to me, your Brush-O-Matic engineer!
