Neanderthals

were big, well-built, hairy, and
lived in northern latitudes.
They had big eyes - for better
vision in poor winter light.
Homo sapiens were small
came from east Africa,
had smaller eyes, were much less hairy,
and, having also bigger brains,
were capable of greater social complexity,
and of what we now call social networking.

Considering my dislike of groups,
hierarchies, hypocrisy and networking,
my love of solitude and hairiness,
my fingers going blue even in summer,
and my small, low-browed skull,
I wonder how many Neanderthal,
and how many Werewolf genes
are in me lurking.
