My Cavity, My Cavity

via Daily Prompt: Cavity

With apologies to T.S. Eliot πŸ™‚

My Cavity, My Cavity

My cavity's a mystery pain,
it's called the hidden hole.
My cavity, my cavity,
there's nothing like my cavity.
It defies diagnostics,
it isn't anywhere!

The dentist seeks it here,
the dentist seeks it there;
but my cavity, my cavity, 
well, it's not anywhere!

To all intents and purposes,
my mouth still looks quite right.
But underneath that pearly grin,
the enamel's worn very thin.

Some say its all the acid, 
others claim alkaline.
Well it could be all the sugar! 
But whatever may be the science,
my gums are sunken in.

My cavity, my cavity,
the Scarlet Pimpernell.
How long till they find you,
and fill that crater in?
