The Beagle's naturalist, Mr. Darwin,
Found a toad miles away from water.
Kindly, he carried it in his hat for hours
To a pond. There, it almost drowned
Until he scooped it out again.
The toad, an atheist till then,
Preached afterwards that Fate
His unmourned death had decreed
Had not his frantic prayers
Moved God to reconsider.
