Lo-giene: A Funny Poem About Oral Hygiene

Updated on September 27, 2012


Your breath stinks

I think you may be fasting

Wait a second

What is the question you

Were asking?

A backdraft wind

Invades my olfactory

I turn my head slightly

Heat against my cheek

Radiates as you speak

A potent aroma

Chases fresh air

From your mouth

Please stop talking

      Hello rahul0324, it can be embarrasing to criticize people on such an intimate problem which I assume they should already be aware of.

      Great hub!

      Listerine to the rescue!! I think this condition you are referring to is called halitosis. There was this girl in my high-school who suffered from this condition. I remember that many of us had to hold our breath every time she was near. I wonder if she knew her mouth smelled very bad. Many people need to practice good personal hygiene. Brushing and flossing and rinsing with mouthwash especially in the morning is a great way to keep your mouth and breath smelling fresh. You should always brush your tongue with toothpaste too for that exta fresh scent. you just never know who you might run into. lol.

      Funny! It reminds me of a boy in my coaching class a few years back! We all were afraid of him... He had this condition... an unhealthy one.. his mouth smelled very bad...and that too each day,... a lot of fun was made about him!
