The Microscopic Microbe Who Only Ever Wanted To Be A Superbig Superbug

The microscopic microbe was really quite tiny, indeed. In fact, he was so microscopic that he measured only one – twentieth of a seed. He was so small, that he could hardly be seen at all – in fact, he regularly got squashed on the wall. He swam round in a puddle, until his head was in a puddle. And sun – bathed in the Sun, until he was almost overdone. Eventually, the microscopic microbe grew and grew – until he had multiplied by twenty – two. Deep down inside, he didn’t pick a life microscopic, so he thought he’d try exercising a bit to see if that did the trick ! First, he started by lifting a brick, until his muscles grew quite thick. Then, he ran around on the track – he was so out of breath, he thought he’d never get back ! He thought that if he exercised longer, his cytoplasms would grow to be much stronger. The Battle of the Infection Detection and Disinfection was going to be quite a fight – so the microscopic microbe worked out every day and night just to make sure that he got the temperature just right ! The germs were known to be quite ferocious – and the problems they caused were utterly atrocious ! Because being a microbe, he was a truly infectious fiend. Nobody loved him … nor wanted to be his friend. So Mick the microscopic microbe went off to try and find a better home. He sat for a while by the garden pond, where he found that the wet frogs were friendly and of the lillypads he was fond. But being micro, he could only go slow – so he took keep fit classes and suddenly started to go. When it started to rain again, the microscopic microbe hid down the drain. Then he headed off down the lane. The microscopic microbe jogged considerably, every day, in fact. He was soon so strong that he could keep all the other germs at bay. Half of them had run away by Saturday.
