"Pulling teeth"

  It's late.....
     Stuck with this toothache
     Pulsating pain is insane to the phase, I can't even think straight
     First, I'll maneuver my mouth into a mirror making the glass break
     "Great....."
     This strategy showed no support, only shards lodged straight in my face
     Trying to speculate a better way to cease the throbbing, next tying my tooth to a doorknob and just YANK!
     "Wait....."
     That didn't work, newly made the suffering much worse
     Last I grasp a tool, bulldoze it between my gums together with my wisdom impulsively giving a pull
     Pause
     Fall
     Blood leakage out the side of my jaw
     I give up
     I'll take a handful of Tylenol, anticipate tell sunrise to issue my dentist a call
