Charles Darwin — The Man

Charles Darwin was a wonderful man,
He studied evolution all over the land,
Born in England in 1809,
His process of natural selection worked mighty fine,
After studying medicine for two long years,
He called it quits and searched for new careers,
After trying to be a clergyman for a church,
He was asked to join the H.M.S. Beagle on a great search,
Much unaware that his theory would greatly expand.
Upon return to his homeland,
People began to understand,
What he had discovered was really cool,
But again, someone tried to make him look like a fool,
This Wallace guy had the same information,
Which caused Darwin to feel the inflammation,
The pressure caused him to publish his knowledge,
In the "Origin of Species" in 1859,
His work will always be admired,
There’s no telling how many people it has inspired,
But most lack the intelligence required,
To play the role that Charles Darwin did in the theory of evolution.

Sailing to the Galapagos


Charles Darwin was a scientist
Evolution was his thing
He traveled to the Galapagos Islands
To hear the finches sing.

A common ancestry is what he found
After many experiments he tried
Even though the birds looked different
There’s common genes inside.

He also said humans evolved from monkeys
With which I disagree
It’s a theory that he though of
One which I don’t believe.

Some people think he’s brilliant
Others just aren’t that impressed
But you decide how you feel
Or if he passed your test.
