Charles Darwin was the first man known to see

Just how a thing like that could possibly be



He served as a naturalist onboard a sailing ship

And the Beagle, to the Galapagos took a trip

Finches on the islands gave him an inspiration

That the church said would lead to his damnation



“Why, that blasphemous, evil, atheist ball of slime
