What better place to study evolution.
Lucy sits separate, eyeing warily the other members of the clan,
as she fondles her young, plucking fleas from the two day old fur.
Herman, the elder, sits lazily at the other end of the enclosure,
having the same done to him by two younger apes.
Herman, the younger, circles the elder, a swatch of leaves in his hand,
a tease rather than a weapon, waiting.
The elder is still strong.
All the rest groom each other one way or another.
As I watch,
the radio in my ear blasts out
Eating the profits as he moves along.
Of course, we have evolved.
Just look at the light in your refrigerator.
