There once was a little girl
who possessed a very special gift.
Whatever she read
became the truth.
She was about to read the
bible, but before she could...
Darwin pushed it aside
and forced her to read
The Origin of Species.
And when she had finished,
he grabbed her by the
ankles and dashed her
head against the rocks.
But by that time,
it was okay.
For he proved
to be the most fit.
