When the beasts were created
Nobody debated
Whether He who designed ’em
Could p’rhaps have refined ’em
No-one questioned the wisdom
Of bringing to is-dom
Any creature as weird
As this, engineered
By a God who can’t blunder
But sometimes … I wonder …
If the sloth could have vetoed
Would he have been three-toed?
