My little girl has been so sick for the last little while that it has become funny. She moved through scary convulsions that landed her in the hospital for two weeks to mono and now is facing oral surgery to lose her wisdom teeth next week. She actually missed an entire two months of school last semester. So this is for my poppet!
A mighty creature is the germ,
Though smaller than the 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.
