Piltdown! Man the Gates
A humorous poem by Tom Graffagnino

Tom Graffagnino, an artist (and it looks from his website like he is a pretty good one) sent us an e-mail with a humorous poem he has written about the struggle by the purveyors of Darwinism to guard the gates of science, entitled "'More Gators in the Moat!' or ('Piltdown! Man the Iv'ry Towers!')". Here is a portion of the poem:

The Supernaturalists are coming!
Egad! By land!...
....By sea and boat!
Piltdown! Man the Iv'ry Towers!
Quick! .....
More 'gators in the moat!


Don't they know our Theory's Fittest!?
How dare they challenge you and me!?
O my Gawd! Can you imagine!?
We shan't allow this Heresy!


Call the Bio-Bishop Council!
Convene the Cardinals from their perch!
Yo! Onward Evo-Soldiers!
We must defend Pope Darwin's Church!


Kids today know how we got here....
It took a while....
But they believe!
Magik Microbe straight to Shakespeare!
What more could "Lucky Mud" achieve!?


No! We mustn't give them access,
To our children made so bright.
Darwinistas! Man your stations!
No Debate!
Comrades, Unite!


Battle Cry: "From Scales to Feathers!"
Battle Hymn: "From Mud to Man!"
And the drumbeat in the background?....
Censorship!
Impose the Ban!

Heh, heh! It goes on. Please fell free to read the remainder here.
