Just trying to inject a little humor in it, found this particular poem particularly applicable... THE GERM 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. by Ogden Nash- who obviously knows more than most IDSA docs!
