Grandpa’s Teeth 

I remember as a child,
Sitting on Grandpa’s lap,
Comfy and sleepy,

And ready for my nap.
I looked up at him,
With adoring eyes,

And that’s when Grandpa
Showed me his surprise.
He opened his mouth,

And pushed out his teeth,
Not the ones on top,
But the ones beneath

I remember I screamed,
And fell to the floor,
As Grandpa laughed,

And did it some more.
And it was quite a while,
Before I realized,

That they would not get me,
It was only a surprise!
But I never quite trusted

My grandpa again,
Unless his mouth was shut,
And his teeth were in!
