Have you heard?

A boy of

Teeth so big as if with secrets

That two lips could not keep together

Teeth so long

They made the day of all kids that met them

You can imagine the relief of the little boy

When Babylon finally fell

When Mother Nature fired those clowns

Oh what joy!

Those incisors have fallen

But in their place

Things have grown over the years

Making me a source of laughter

Sometimes for reasons I’m proud

Sometimes for reasons I’m ashamed

But I’ve come to realize, that

The shame is where the biggest fame is
