It was my first ever visit from the tooth fairy
And, like anyone encountering a surprise intruder would,
I punched her square in the mouth.
As blood filled her gob and her molars littered my carpet
I apologised profusely and tried to aid her to her feet.
The tooth fairy rejected my help,
Swiped the change from my piggy bank,
And called me a ‘massive shit’.
