Poetic Thursday: Hey There, Sport

It’s poetry day! Each Thursday, we join Pam and her ginger kitties for Poetic Thursday. You can find them at Two Spoiled Cats.

This is our photo inspiration for today’s poem:

And here’s my poem:

Hey There, Sport

Hey there, sport, you’re looking kinda cute,
but we have to ask: what happened to your tooth?

Did you lose it in a nasty fall?
Or take one to the face while playing ball?

Was it a baby tooth, and you lost it late?
Say, just what IS the tooth fairy’s going rate?

Missing a tooth: that’s quite a shame.
But meanwhile, good luck with that marbles game.

And I decided to share a picture of my little snaggle-tooth from a few years ago.

~These Days Of Mine~

  1. Perfect poem – quick to pick up on that missing tooth. I didn’t notice it until I started reading your poem. And your little man, I remember that look. Precious.

  2. We all went through that stage I guess – losing a baby tooth and waiting for that “big kid” tooth to come in. Great photo of Marshall in that stage and well done on the poem!


  3. ” a few ” …. yup, we’ll go with that 😉 great poem, once again !
