At the age of six, I won a smiling contest
Without front teeth, I was obviously the best
They picked me and this guy
They called him Pinky
When he laughed I knew why
He turned pink from head to toe
At least he had front teeth, wouldn't you know!
I never saw Pinky after first grade
Over the years his memory began to fade
During a government class my senior year
Why, who should appear...
It was Grady, a.k.a. Pinky, or at least I thought it was him
Because when he laughed the shade of pink was hard to dim
I didn't confront him about first grade
My suspicions were confirmed with the inscription he made
In my annual he wrote: "It's easy to see why you won the smiling contest, don't ever loose that smile".
....A single smile, can make life worthwhile.....
