Peter the Toothless Possum
Out in the woods behind a tree
I spied a young opossum.
He had poor teeth, and I found out
Twas cause he didn’t floss em
He could not bite down hard on food,
He ate just flower blossoms.
Some blossoms, though, were bitter, and
His stomach had to ‘toss em’
“I wish I had some brand new teeth,
Then I would look quite awesome.
But now that all my teeth are gone,
I’m just a toothless possum.”
“If ever I can get new teeth,
I’ll brush em every day.
And I will always floss em, too
Before I go to play.”
