Imani's lovely grandmother was of the highest class

so she was thoroughly embarrassed she lost her dentures at mass.

Sweet Imani drove an hour there to help her look with no luck.

When exhausted a brief perch on the church kitchen counter had her buck.

"Jesus Christ, Gram! You've bitten me on my ass!"
