A lifelong journey now heads South
Mountains scaled with bounding leaps
An all-conquering endless youth
A jaw set firm with steel resolve
Lays now in faded heaps
Like wobbly dominoes fall
Only remains an empty mouth
Suck, not bite is all I have
My tombstone teeth have headed South
My epitaph to this vacant cavern?
Beware the sugar-sweet promises
Relentless, rotting dentine death
Don’t ever let your teeth go South.
