translation of an untitled poem from 1874 by Wilhelm Busch (1832-1908)

They tucked in drinks and hashed it out,
That monkey business, see?
That Darwin stuff, what an affront
To human dignity!

They drank a bunch of tankards down,
They stumbled out the doors,
They grunted and scratched and made it home
Scrabbling on all fours.

A typical Wilhelm Busch observation—I chose this one because it was the first one I liked that I didn’t immediately find another translation of.
