Analysis and comments on Fleas by Ogden Nash

Comment 9 of 9, added on April 15th, 2014 at 3:34 PM.

Fleas are the insects forming the order Siphonaptera. They are wingless,
with mouthparts adapted for piercing skin and sucking blood. Fleas are
external parasites, living by hematophagy off the blood of mammals and
birds.

Fleas

"Fleas": written by Ogden Nash? Strickland Gillilan ("The Antiquity of
Microbes")? Gilett Burgess? Can anyone help? -- Francisco Albano, from the
Philippines

This is a concise expression of the universiality of the human condition by
the master of humorous poetry that speaks to ordinary life and the mind of
modern man. It's one of my all time favorites by one of my all time poets.

I am trying to confirm that it was in fact Odgen Nash who wrote the short
poem Fleas (Adam/Had'em). There seems to be some confusion. Can anyone
help? Was it Strickland Gillilan?
