Well, my young grandson, that is quite a good question.
I’ll tell you about rabies, just pay attention.
It’s most often thought to come from dogs or bats,
but you can also get it from squirrels and cats.
It’s not so common these days, you can be sure.
And if you do get rabies, there is a cure.
What’s that? You said ‘where do babies come from?!’
Then I guess my words sounded like hokum.
I’m sorry, Sport. My hearing’s going bad.
Say, why don’t you ask your mom or your dad?
