This guy named Wegener claims the continents were once joined together,
While other geologist said the chance that this happened is absolutely never.
Wegener was put on the defense and was pressured to prove his theory,
That the continents were all joined as one called Pangaea; many were still
So he set about to look for proof that his theory was on the mark,
And looked for mountain ranges and coal fields to match up; was he groping
in the dark?
Well, he found fossils of the same creature on different continents,
These creatures couldn't swim across the ocean; now things are starting to
Furthermore, he found evidence of continental glaciers in places that are
now quite hot,
Making him think these places were once nearer to the Earth's poles, regrettably
many still said, "NOT."
For weather patterns continuously change in our strange and mysterious world,
And can change without continents changing position, so this theory was righteously
Poor Wegener thought he had proved his theory beyond a shadow of a doubt,
While science again rejected his theory, claiming there was one big unanswered
question they could still proudly flout..
Which was, "What force makes these mighty land masses move as if floating
like a plate?"
With this question, Wegener was strangely silent, was sinking into obscurity
his unalterable fate?
Well, it was a while until scientists identified previously unknown and powerful
But, alas, poor Wegener was long dead not knowing his name would be eulogized
in several university courses.
