Chewing Gum (Fun Poem 46)

Poem By David Harris

I enjoy chewing gum
it takes my mind off cigarettes,
but because I have false teeth.
(I lost the real ones years ago)
Chewing gum become like chewing super glue.
When it sticks, boy does it stick.
You stand in the bathroom
completely and utterly gummy
scraping the gum of your dentures.
So now, my motto is
if you have dentures
suck on a hard-boiled sweet,
they don’t stick to your teeth.

Ever tried Polo's David? When I gave up smoking 6 years ago I ate packet after packet. Chewing gum always makes me hungry. A nice fun poem, I can just imagine you scraping the gum off your teeth lol, best wishes Lynda xx
