Found Poem: A tooth

8 Apr

An entry from the Spambot Poetic Encyclopedia of General Knowledge.

A tooth
(plural teeth)
is a small, calcified, whitish
build
found in the jaws
(or mouths)
of many vertebrates and
occupied to defeat down
food.

Some animals,
explicitly carnivores,
also use teeth repayment for hunting or owing
defensive purposes.

The roots of teeth
are covered by gums.

Teeth are not made of bone,
but degree of multiple tissues
of varying density and hardness.

The general systematize of teeth is nearly the same
across the vertebrates,
although
there is
respectable modulation
in their form and position.

The teeth of mammals
have esoteric roots,
and this figure is also create
in some fish, and in
crocodilians.

In most teleost fish,
how,
the teeth are fastened to the outer surface
of the bone, while
in lizards
they are fond of to the inner interface
of the jaw
by way of harmonious side.

In cartilaginous fish,
such as sharks, the
teeth
are attached around rough ligaments
to the hoops
of cartilage
that type the jaw.

    I like the phrase “occupied to defeat down food”. Tomorrow, when I make dinner for my husband, I will say, “Here, Darling. Occupy your teeth to defeat down food.” He’s used to my odd vocabulary and will really get a kick out of it.

      My favorite part, too. It’s aggressive and clunkily elegant, and I heartily endorse its adoption. 🙂
