Fossil Bird, painting ay the author.
transition of reptile to fowl;
from cold to warm blooded the key
to survive in a grueling bowl.
To an artist the work of imagination,
where creation is in the mind;
apologies to science and to Darwin,
art often ahead of the find.
Need not trace the origin of art,
but science needs the proof;
like Piltdown Man is all but hoax,
the greatest scientific goof.~
