Don’t forget to floss

The dentist told me, “Brush your teeth,

and don’t forget to floss.”

I promised I would do it and told him,

“You’re the boss!”

When I got home, I brushed my teeth,

then found the perfect stance.

I swung my hips and swept my arms

as I began to dance.

I wiggled back and forth until

I figured I was through.

I’m really glad the dentist told me

that’s what I should do.

Now every time I brush, I floss.

It’s fun, but I don’t see

how dancing after brushing

can prevent a cavity.
