Darwin Indeed

Fourteen years ago, I watched
Joe Darwin, the homeless guy
who sits outside Tesco, talk
on a mobile phone.

I can recall when mobiles
were only used by well-off,
well-modern and well…
neither of those were me.

Nowadays they serve as
extra limbs or more useful
than some organs at least;
left kidney, right Samsung.

I expect someday a child born
with one attached, superseding
a less vital part. Forget the apes!
Now that’s evolution.
