Age is bloviated

TEETH

Such wonderful things I never knew I had.
Chomping and grinding
On succulent cuts of meat
And rending corn cobs
To tasty juices.
Floss only involved candy.
Apple pies mere victims
To my everlasting tastes.
The occasional filling
Was always the popcorn kernelís fault.

I have new friends now.
Soups and slow cooked stews.
Iím lucky I always liked Sago
Porridge is an old friend
Newly re-united.
Pease porridge indeed
As I carefully empty my mouth
And gently cosset my new friends
In their watery bath.
My teeth.

ROFL...I don't know what to say, other than what a shame.

"...The Jaws of time do devour it up." Willie Shakepeare( A Midsummer Night Dream). Good poem, but not quite up to your ancient countryman! thanks Peter.
