Yes, my words taste very sweet.
But Sugar leads to cavities,
Causing teeth to ache and scream
When you read the Verbal Treats
I’ve written just for You to Eat.

I find myself considering:
Is this burst of Poetry
[Perhaps Poetic Dentistry?]
Cloying heavy-handedly,
Causing pain and overload
From Gifts I write for you to Read?

I’ll stop, but only Temporarily;
I’ll Do MY part, but
Brush YOUR teeth!
[I’m Asking Triple “Pretty Please!”]
