A Child’s View Of The World II


As a child I believed that germs
Must arrive from Germany
(An idea only reinforced
When I contracted German measles)

Though no order forms, invoices
Cash or receipts changed hands
Similarly I thought ’twas Mark Twain
Who most likely invented string

    • One of the many precious qualities possessed by young children. I still remember a small girl’s shock some years ago (she now has young ones of her own) when she heard me say I was intending to kill two birds with one stone. 😀
