The Crocodile's Toothache



      The Crocodile

      Went to the dentist

      And sat down in the chair,

      And the dentist said, "Now tell me, sir,

      Why does it hurt and where?"

      And the Crocodile said, "I'll tell you the truth,

      I have a terrible ache in my tooth,"

      And he opened his jaws so wide, so wide,

      The the dentist, he climbed right inside,

      And the dentist laughed, "Oh isn't this fun?"

      As he pulled the teeth out, one by one.

      And the Crocodile cried, "You're hurting me so!

      Please put down your pliers and let me go."

      But the dentist laughed with a Ho Ho Ho,

      And he said, "I still have twelve to go-

      Oops, that's the wrong one, I confess,

      But what's one crocodile's tooth more or less?"

      Then suddenly, the jaws went SNAP,

      And the dentist was gone, right off the map,

      And where he went one could only guess...

      To North or South or East or West...

      He left no forwarding address.

      But what's one dentist, more or less?

      -Shel Silverstein

I like this poem because the dentist pulls out all the teeth BUT the right one. Th e crocodile gets so frusterated t hat he just closes his jaw! SNAP!
