Evolving or Devolving

The pundit spoke of “evolving men”
And suburban women voting —
Evolving from and toward what?
I thought of Neanderthals with
Clubs in their hands. Actually,
He might be referring to men
Who belong to clubs — golf,
Tennis, athletic, Good Old
Boys — modern day places
For wealthy, old, white men
With Neanderthal minds
Who sit around sipping
Martinis and wine, reading the
Wall Street Journal and grunting
Ofttimes. Maybe they actually are
Devolving from Neanderthals,
Aka the old, white guys in Congress.
