Do You Remember Me?
You are creamy and shiny,
You are the first child in your family,
You are cleaned daily,
Alongside your brothers and sisters,
So that when you enter, you light up the room,
But one day, your legs began to wobble,
First a little bit,
Then more, and more,
Until someone pushed you off the pink stage!
You fell to the floor,
But couldn't get back on,
Because now an adult has taken your position.
You were put away in a safe place,
And a fairy came to collect you,
You told her to go away,
But she told you sharply,
“No tooth, you are not wanted here anymore!”
You were shocked,
“I am no tooth!” you exclaimed, “I am an actor”
The fairy explained that you were a tooth, and now you were to be traded.
You finally agree, and you were traded for some gold coins.
The coins were quickly spent on lollies, but I still remember you, do you remember me?
