Carrots

                   Carrots

They're orange and crunch,
Some people like to munch
On them.

Not I!

You see, I have dentures,
And the two don't mix well.
If you're in the same boat as I,
Then you surely know why!

Hey, don't weep for me,
Cause you see,
That leaves more
For Bugs Bunny.

And the Easter Bunny, too.
Besides, I like my carrots cooked
Thoroughly.

I much prefer them raw but
but once you spoke
I saw
that dentures cause a problem.

Another good one girl.

Thanks, Friend! I discovered a lot of things I can't eat now, but I am getting better adjusted to them. I've had them now for a year and five months. :)

What a cute poem. Roasted carrots with garlic can be quite tasty!

Love your blogs name! I love carrots, cooked and raw. And so does my Chihuahua :-D

love your poems, and I'm not a fan of al dente anyway :)

Very cute. :) You covered all the arguments for why no carrots for you, unless they're thoroughly cooked.

haha. Being a dentist by profession and having made countless dentures, I have never really thought of the difficulty in biting a carrot with the dentures !

I love the poem, Grammy. You really got the idea out there in such a poetic manner. Hahaha! Carrots are really hard to munch on, right? Anyway, I hope you update us with more creative dental issues like that. I really enjoyed it. Kudos! :)
