Water Balloons

The question asked – What quantity of you
is water? I expected it was much.
But 61%? Turns out it’s true,
of humans fully grown. A baby’s such
a budding creature, full of life and new,
perfection-plump and cushiony to touch,
she may be fluid 96%.
(I overstate, but you know what I meant).

(Ottava Rima)
