The Germ

Here's a fun little poem I'm inspired to share from our past sick days.

The Germ

A mighty creature is the germ,
Though smaller than a pachyderm.
His customary dwelling place
Is deep within the human race.
His childish pride he often pleases
By giving people strange diseases.
Do you, my poppet, feel infirm?
You probably contain a germ.

-Ogden Nash


  1. How cute. :-) And I'm glad to say that 'germ' has finally left our house after hanging around for over two weeks! I hope you all are well now also.

  2. Hope you are all feeling better soon!
