Five haikus to the root canal

1.

The endodontist

keeps his files in a holster

Canal sharp shooter

 

2.

My dentist is Sikh

He speaks with disarming charm

Antidote to fear

 

3.

Four needles numb jaw

A Coldplay soundtrack distracts

I watch, wait, endure

 

4.

How do you judge depth?

“Electronic gauge,” he says

Not plumber’s feel – whew!

5.

How many per day?

“Eight,” the reply, as I pay …

I’m in the wrong job

  1. Nice job Art. Good to see some if your other talents with the pen. (Aren’t we all in the wrong business? Except real estate agents.)

    I have a client who is an orthodontist. He runs his practice like a Cirque Du Soleil performance and sees 125 patients per day! Seems like a fairly lucrative gig, LOL.
