Some Chicken, Some Neck by Gareth Writer-Davies

( a question answering search engine based poem)


Science has discovered that everything in our body works together better, than if we didn’t have everything in our body working together.

is a Curate’s argument.
Excellent in parts.

Birds could swim underwater to get to reach their food. How does the long neck differ?
The deepest sea diving bird is a short necked bird.

I don’t want to hear “because God made them that way”

Take for example a heron or goose – they need to be able to reach a long way to get their food out of the water. A short neck just wouldn’t work. 

Matthew 23:37 – O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, [thou] that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under [her] wings, and ye would not!

Another reason could be because of sexual selection?

Take the chicken.  No, please, take the chicken.

Each species of bird has evolved to suit its environment and the prey that it catches. 


Then having a long neck would be advantageous. 

Some Chicken, Some Neck!
