The human body is perpetually pregnant with
Trillions of microorganisms that hath colonized
Its intestinal lair, and like the gravid woman’s pith
Heart eats not only for herself, but for her fertilized
Womb as well, each man must not only eateth for his health,
But for the probiotics of his microbiome’s wealth.
