False tooth, a poem by Julius Chingono

A false tooth
got lost
during a tongue dance
that was misty
and full of froth.
It was found holding
on to a rotting gum.

A false tooth
also smiles
when real teeth smile
do they have any feelings?

Are you aware
all those people died
to make certain
you lost the election?
