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.

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

It's universal. Humans were not gods first creation nor are humans likely to be the last living creature to inhabit the globe.
