THE MICROBE

Standard



THE MICROBE
The microbe is so very small
You cannot make him out at all,
But many sanguine people hope
To see him through a microscope.
His jointed tongue that lies beneath
A hundred curious row of teeth ;
His seven tufted tails with lots
Of lovely pink and purple spots,
On each of which is a pattern stands,
Composed of forty separate bands ;
His eyebrows of a tender green ;
All these have never yet been seen
But scientists, who ought to know,
Assure us they must be so ……
Oh ! let us never, never doubt
What nobody is sure about !
