My Toothbrush Lost Its Bristles

A Children's Poem

By R. Renée Bembry
Could you brush your teeth with no bristles on your toothbrush? What if the bristles fell off just when you were about to brusy your teeth? 
Well, here is a humorous poem about bristles falling from a toothbrush in the most unusual ways.

My Toothbrush Lost Its Bristles


My Toothbrush lost its bristles

While lying on the sink

Before the pieces fell off

They turned a gruesome pink


My toothbrush lost its bristles

While knocking on the door

Don't know how it could knock with--

Out standing on the floor


My toothbrush lost its bristles

While running cross the street

Don't know how it crossed over

Without ankles or feet


My toothbrush lost its bristles

Before it brushed my teeth

I wished I'd had the new one

Lynn hung from the heath wreath


My toothbrush lost its bristles

While awaiting blue paste

They became so impatient

Fell from the head in haste


My toothbrush lost its bristles

Now I can't brush my teeth

Hope Mom won't be too fussy

Cause I'm falling asleep
