Today is the birthday of a very special man. One who made a huge impact on my life and quite possibly yours too, as we ponder how some creatures can evolve into perfect specimens, completely at one with their environments; we consider how their bodies are perfectly tuned to the needs of their own kind. And we contemplate the complexities of life, such as “I wonder if he’ll win tonight” and “Will he get his kit off anytime soon?” I’m talking about Gethin Jones - who’re you thinking of? Oh, of course - it’s Charles Darwin’s birthday too!
Happy birthday to you
Sticky backed plastic and glue
Sparkly sequins and a fake tan
And a see through shirt too!
I’ve never claimed to be a poet, OK! Happy Birthday and good luck in Glasgow, Gethin.
Warning: Annie is there alone, there’s no-one to tie her down!
