Poem of the Year

PEACEMAKER

By: Jonathan Tafreg


Keep preaching your peace,

While people are fighting war,

One thing you don’t understand.


You want holy kiss,

Your mouth full of neither nor,

This too you don’t understand.


Your belly don’t miss,

You want us to suffer more,

But still you don’t understand.

Specializing in the tooth,
And graduated, with honors
With new thesis
To cure the aching malady.
 
“Our teeth shall be all right!”
People chanted, welcoming his services.
And he started work, prompt and immediate.
They brought him all the teeth they had
Decaying teeth, aching teeth, strong teeth.
And he started working on their jaws
Diligently pulling out every tooth
From the jaws of every mouth,
And they paid him with meat
Which now they could not eat.

And so on went the dentist
Making heaps and heaps of teeth
Useless. Laying them waste
Without fear that soon,
Very soon indeed,
He would have no teeth to attend to,
No tooth for which to call himself a dentist.
