Bogey Biology


Like microscopic armies

battling germy foes

a microbe war is raging

inside our snotty nose.


Staphylococcus aureus

can make us very ill.

Resistant to most medicines

it’s difficult to kill.


But scientists who study snot

have seen these bad germs die

when a different bacteria

is plentiful nearby.


They plan to use this winning germ

to make antibiotics.

Such science research might be called

exotic snot biotics!


by Celia Berrell


I was fascinated by this inside-story about noses …  apparently it’s a snotty battlefield up there!  This new is not to be sneezed at – honestly
