Part 3: Yours hygienically, the gentle toothbrush

Taking from where i last left here's another in the interesting object grievance series.-The gentle toothbrush....

Yours hygienically, the gentle toothbrush

I am the ever useful gentle toothbrush
Use me to make your teeth shiny and bright
Every morning & before you go to bed at night

Remember using me else ur teeth wont stay white

I come for all ages big and small
In different colours, shapes and size
Taught down
generations to all first time users
How to use me is an art so very concise

Toddlers prefer me as colourful as possible
Shaped in as a fairy or like Scooby Doo
Sometimes I am like Batman or Spiderman
Sometimes even as Mickey or Winnie d Pooh

For grown ups I am more like a chore
Embedded somewhere in their pea little brain
Each morning use me nicely & well
Or have your mouth stink like a drain

The mouths I go in are just seldom nice
Mostly having yellow teeth and an awful stench

Sweets, gum, chicken and u name it, all that junk
Nicely stuck in their forever horrid toothy fence

They would then pay a lot to some weirdo of a guy
To help fill the cavities and scale out the tar
He would use silver and gold but fill up the holes

Even pull out a tooth sometimes going a tad bit too far

He wouldn’t spare u till ur jaw’s open wide
From paste to floss, from wat to eat & wat not to
He would advise a lot, even request u to come often
So dat u care for ur teeth which u never gotto!

But it all goes in vain d moment he’s done talkin
Once we are out of his prison, we only wishfully ignore
Back to wat we loved eating- junk & more junk
The worst for the last-Sweets & chocolates galore

I wish the humans could be a bit more concerned
And use a lot more of what is there in their head

To use me and become more attractive and charming
To treat me as a friend, not as a punishment instead.

P.S. Kindly someone tell the idiot the paste is long finished. Can’t the lazy bum go buy a new one? Also please please buy the new Red one. It’s nice and it matches my colour.

Hated brushing as a kid...had to be pulled by the ear and made to...now I'm more resigned to the daily ordeal...still not a fan of the process:(
And you thought of a toothbrush's point of view?

How can u express d emotions of a nonliving thing so accurately?

Lol Chirag! Marvelling, as always with even the most elementary things, which is perhaps the most difficult things to do!

I've always liked soft brushes with loads of paste on them despite being told that a quarter of the quantity if sufficient!

But then ash feefle shay "old shabitts ssdhie shard." Oops, shorry, I gotta brush in my mouth! ;)

Lolz

Cheers Mate!

lukkydivz said...

u r so sweet chagg, ur posts speak so much about you!

Inspiration said...

Very nice da... how could you imagine of writing such beautifully and mind blowingly cute poem.....

Mind me suggessting you something...

I wish you to write something which is concerned to people in a serious way, like take up a serious issue which is happening in the world, our country. Which would provoke people to do better for the welfare of people, for the welfare of our mother country and to the world in general.

There are many people who read poems, they appreciate and after few days forget what you wrote. for them to remember your peom and stay in their heart for ever, have to be different and which should be concerned to people.

Cheers!
