A lab coat with wicked eyes a’ flashing

Peers down his nose at my pitiful face

A vicious tool of metal comes crashing

Toward my teeth as I scream with disgrace


The guzzler, slurper is his minion

The driller a bomb buzzing in my ears

His warfare, true torture in my opinion

His numbing needle my Krypton-ic fear


But, light! My chompers glow with glory

As I exit the battle of the dentist’s domain

This great moment of freedom; my life’s crowning story

Despite that my swollen mouth still feels the pain


But, alas! In a moment, Mom says we’ll appear

Again in his warzone in just half a year…
