Evolution Poetry

I give you... evolution limericks!

A sampling:
Aeroplankton abounds everywhere—
Living stuff that's suspended in air:
Mini plant-life and beasts
Such as spiders and yeasts—
Which is why we evolved nasal hair.
(by Quickbeam)

The primate who first walked bipedally
Perhaps did not do so too steadily.
Using two legs, not four,
Brought rewards by the score,
And so now we all do it quite readily.
(by David Schildkret)

Evolution: it's time that we ended
Teaching kids that from apes we descended,
Not because some contended
ID is more splendid:
I'm told that the apes are offended.
(by Type A)
