"Intelligent Design" Yet Knocked Sideways

or

The Case of the Crabs

"Since brainless evolution made the crab,    
the question "Why?" remains a little drab."    
-- Introduction to Natural Selection,    
an evolutionary biology course for the select fittest    
   
*    
   
An unaware sure-footedness most rare yet still belies    
the hermit's fossil face, thick-armored shell, and jellied eyes    
since first it scrabbled from the brine and gained the primal beach    
to grasp in greed each painful need within its clawing reach    
firm fortified by crustal grit and periscopic gaze    
on walking with a know-how forward, back, or cornerways    
till leg joints outward turned on evolution's lazy tide    
and fights as well as flights quick danced with ease from side to side.
