Jaws are clenched
Why this tenseness
Why this stress
While I’m sleeping,
teeth are gnashing
Why not stop
and start relaxing?
Flossing and brushing and taking good care
I value my teeth and do my share
What a trick – this sneak attack
A modicum of control is all I ask!
I like to plan and seek and know
I line my ducks all in a row
Always think I must be cautious
But can’t be vigilant while unconscious
So at night things get quite raucous
Meditation, more action, less caffeine?
Will that turn night fright to a dream?
How to monitor if it’s so?
(An accountant’s need to balance and know)
Seeking a cure that’s iron clad
and biting into bite splints just makes me mad
Let it happen
if it must
Grind my teeth
right into dust
