Evolution in Action
by Jay Lake
Daddy was a Neanderthal
Bright eyes like diamonds in the sky
He loved me in his great huge arms
My Mama went to Bard College
Majored in interpretive dance
Hair like fire on a summer night
Genetic drift, my furry ass
I was a beautiful baby
I'm a big, handsome man today
The women love my rough good looks
I'm evolution in action
Science marches on my feet
Hey babe, buy an ape-man a drink?
