How did Madame Van Gorp
Holding fast in her dainty hands
witness a hovering object
on the day she was to go
to the lecture of a new found primate?
Was she being observed for the unconventional choice of her corset?
Or was it her belief that primates were not that dangerous yet
did stem from some similar evolutionary background -and this, this well before Darwin!
Madame Van Gorp chose to ignore all
She retro-spied on the spy plane
She knew her campaign for apes was in vain
Yet she also knew her binocular telescopes
would serve to observe
more than a horserace at the opera.
