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 rows of teeth;
His seven tufted tails with lots
Of lovely pink and purple spots,
On each of which 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 that is must be so. .
Oh! let us never, never doubt
What nobody is sure about!

lady survives her personal trauma without any long lasting effects and takes great memories of snorkeling around this isle. Comes back and brings her family and friends.When will Saba have a good reporter? When will failed ex-civil servants looking for medals and admonishment for an entire life of indifference seek reverence upon a different shore… or, what the hell, just shut up? This was, once again, a disgraceful and flagrant act of mitifnormasion. Which is damaging a great product on Saba in very difficult times,

This is a nice song to add to the hygene curriculum. Wish I knew if it was a poem or a song
