Dentist Visit - Beatnik Style

Dear dentist.Dr. Dungeon master of tooth decay.
Masked man with drill in hand.
Wielding whirring whining weapons of your trade.
Move to reshape the craggy white cityscape of
Bicuspidville.

Novocaine- You sadistic bitch.
You stinging sticking stymied
harbinger of false relief.
Mask the hot horrible pain of
man's inhumanity to mouth.
Your fickle fading
leaves gaping gums of humanity screaming
in freshly drilled agony
praying for ibuprofen.

That is why I used always ask for the gas. It's hard to find nowadays, but, 6 year old me loved the trippy dentist!

Wow Bea,

What a cheerful poem. Were you on nitrous as well as novocaine when you wrote it?

I hate going to the Dentist. Give me a call if you need something stronger than Advil.

I think that's probably what Arthur Denton was thinking...

Um, what the hell happened to the comment I left earlier today?
Are you deleting me? ME???

Wait a minute - Blogger Was acting up earlier - I should blame them, maybe?

I think I said something to the effect of "this IS the good dentist! Just think how much fun this would be with the quack one!" (open your yellow pages, close your eyes, pick one - thats your quack)But very creative way to say, "Ow, dammit!" writing a poem.

But now, I can't remember what the hell I typed before that second cup of coffee - is that wrong?

Have I told you lately how brilliant I think you are? If not, I'm telling you now. :)

I loved this! I'm scared to death of the dentist.

Would you like to exchange links?

I'm due to have all my teeth pulled soon. Being knocked out to wake up in a week would be an acceptable solution. :)

Heh, And I thought my root canal was bad...

I did a post recently saying that my new dentist has probably the worst set of teeth I've ever seen. He even speaks with a lisp they're so wonky. This terrifies me.

Awesome, dude. Totally wonderful. (I mean, except for your pain and all. But that's where true art comes from, right? RIGHT?)

This is exactly why Dean has me researching the local sedation dentists. If I can't find a good one he refuses to go.
