Well, I'm A Monkey's Uncle

Mr. Darwin claimed that we are descended from the apes!

   In zoos you may see your kin in various species, sizes and shapes.

      Verily, verily if this be true that we are related to the monkey,

         Then, I reckon it could be said that 'I'm truly a monkey's unkie!'

    G'day Robert... This little ditty brought on a chuckle. I've talked myself into being an evolutionist... just to keep the Jehovahs at my front door interested. I might tell them I'm a monkey's uncle on their next visit. Regards - Lindsay

    Oh Darwin, Darwin and his silly ole ideas... your brought new meaning to "monkey's uncle"... great wit and humor as always! Always love that little bit of country slang in your pieces...
