The Populace Invisible
by Lannie Brockstein.

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