This poem is a true story!


 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.....

A cute reflection from your past. Wouldn't we all want to win a smiling contest that requires no teeth!
