Looth Tooth – a poem by Arden Davidson

I’ve got a looth tooth

that wigglth and jigglth and wrigglth.

I move it around

but it never comth out of my mouth.

I pull it, I yank it,

I twirl it, I thpank it,

but it jutht never theems

to want to come out

of ith houth.


I’d call the Tooth Fairy,

but she’th kinda thcary,

Tho I thtill cannot theem to be free

of thith wiggly looth tooth,

that to tell you the truth,

ith makin’ a thap outa me.


I’m going to give it

one thuper thtrong yank,

cuth I really could uthe thome money.

Great Scott! It’s out! At last, it’s out!

But now I’m talking funny.
