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.
it is a lovely poem. it can raise awareness among people about the severity of diseases and how much preventive we have to become
i like it it needs more energy though i think there are funnier poems i am studying ogden nash in school i am 14
I have to do this poem for a project and think it is not one of the more humorous poems by Nash.
