Wasps And Bees

By Frank A. Roberts

Don’t you remember when I was young
Wasps and bees I sure got stung

Cut my finger and scraped my knees
And hollyhock flowers made me sneeze

Tore my pants and shirt buttons lost
Barefoot in summer, cold hands from frost

Penny candy is what children ate
Never knowing our ultimate fate

The drill goes down and I start to moan
And big vibrations, just smell that bone

No pain killers used in those old days
If you don’t cry dad’s dime is all it pays

The dentist was kind and very willing
Alice you can mix your own filling

Can’t eat for an hour so the silver can set
Mom say not for awhile any candy you get
