Grandma’s Teeth by Aidan Thorn

Grandma’s teeth made her face look right
Grandma’s teeth made her smile bright
Grandma’s teeth would wear stick meant for lips
And they’d shine in my eyes before a slobbering kiss

Grandma’s teeth sat in a glass by the bed
Making Grandma a little short in the head
Grandma’s teeth haven’t moved for a while
Because Grandma’s gone, and so has my smile
