Darwinian Repurposing

DARWIN repurposed the horseshoe crab
Far better than Post-its, tray or tab
He classified the crab as Nelson
And stacked his research on Nelson's telson
A desk accessory may seem a bit drab
But it's far better than being a crab.

Then he designed a canine shredder
Pieces of paper never seemed deader
The wind took this occasion to play
Before blowing the confetti away.
Tired after his doubleheader,
Darwin took the dog home and fed her.

If you must work August through July
Do grab a crab so you won't have to cry
Through Darwinian brilliance it's not out of reach
to set up your office and work at the beach.
Darwinian repurposing -- don't be shy
Next on your list, repurpose your guy!

Aragonite For Breakfast

OYSTERS on the half shell
Delicious! - slide or chew
Not so easy though
When the eyes look up at you.

And just before my bite
It screamed, "Arrhggg, Aragonite*!
Aragonite!" with all its might
Fingers raised, staring in fright.

"Choke, choke," I heard it croak
Poke, poke, I poked the bloke
Cough, cough, it spit up a pearl
I  didn't eat but gave it a twirl

To get the pearl of course! I am a girl
With no remorse. "To the sea with ye!"–hurl!
I hung the pearl from my necklace
And then went on with my breakfast.

PS  *Aragonite is the mineral normally found in pearls.
 It is more powerful than kryptonite.

PPS  Only really good sports will model for me anymore.

Paint on,
