The Great Escape

Clive was a tooth-botherer,
Toiled the enamel face,
Nursed an ailing Health Service,
Fought to stand the pace.

Took himself and his family,
Halfway around the globe,
To air his green credentials,
And leave behind the probe.

These days his Kiwi clients,
Are not so much corporeal,
As tall and green and leafy,
Majestic and arboreal.

He's much happier.
