LORETTA LOST A TOOTH AT LUNCH
Loretta lost a tooth at lunch
while chewing on a Brussels sprout.
She took a bite and heard a crunch
and found her tooth had fallen out.
The students stared at such a scene.
Samantha shrieked and Franny froze,
and Lance still had a lima bean
and half a pickle up his nose.
Miranda had been making mounds
of mushy, brown banana goo,
and Peter had been pouring pounds
of pumpkin pudding in his stew.
Sylvester had been showing off
with half a sandwich in his cheeks,
while Phillip found the stroganoff
he'd hid for six or seven weeks.
Now as for teeth, I've lost a bunch,
from up to down and left to right,
but when it comes to eating lunch,
I've only lost my appetite.
