Caveman by Jacob Armstrong

Boxers on back-to-front,

empties its lungs in Neanderthal grunt.

Primordial limbs thrash in laboured protest,

legs heave and squirm, before reluctant rest.

Eyes are itchy, needs a wee:

teenage boy, exhibit number three.

Metabolises oxygen, expels CO2

Beats the alarm clock with a fist: 7:22

The missing link awakens.
