Feeding Fastidious Micro-organisms

I’ve got a microscopic pet, he’s quite a fussy eater, yet this brain heart infusion broth is ideal food for Daniel, my streptococci spaniel.

I read the following (don’t ask me how or why) and was determined to use the information in a poem:
Brain heart infusion broth is a highly nutritious general-purpose growth medium for fastidious microorganisms, such as streptococci, pneumococci and meningococci. It is made by the recuperation of nutrients from boiled cattle hearts and brains. Soluble factors are released into the broth during the boiling procedure. The broth can then be turned into powder for easy distribution.
