    I thought for sure it’d be cavities, but NOOOOO, apparently she doesn’t get her vaccinations either.

    Oh, one nit-picky thing I noticed regarding meter: The second line’s just a tad too long. Perhaps it could be “Who never brushed before bed-na.” It’s not perfect that way either, but it’s just a suggestion.

    Thank you Gwen! That’s what I had in my mind before I decided to write it down, but then I forgot how I had it before, and couldn’t figure it out!

    “Poor Little Johnny… He should’ve brushed his teeth.” BEST POEM ENDING EVER.
