    I thought this was written by Strickland Gillilan in 1927. And it's actual title is Lines on the Antiquity of Microbes. Someone later shortened it to Fleas. And its been misattributed to both Ogden Nash and Shel Silverstein.(Report)Reply

    To say it all in about two words is a poetic achievement worth praising. You did it, Ogden.(Report)Reply
