Poem

Waking up
I brush six of my teeth
Two of my upper incisors
Four of my lower incisors

I keep my grin
From going beyond my hygiene
Until I stand before –
Brownish children
Who bear lots of –
Hilarity to stage in this
Frowned environment of learning

Then
I laugh to reveal
The portions stuck in my incisors.
Children will start giggling

Yeah!
I am that person
Who pop bottles and balloons
To celebrate the moments of exhilaration.
