“The Microbe is so very small …”

“The Microbe is so very small
“You cannot make him out at all,
“But many sanguine people hope
“To see him through a microscope.”

—  Hilaire Belloc, “More Beasts for Worse Children,” 1897

“Too bad the Hovitos don’t know you the way that I do … BELLOC.”

—  Indiana Jones, “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” 1981
