I want to be editor of the chimpanzee register

You know, chimps?

They sure as Christ know you

That genus with answers

They've scoped you for years

Yes, you. For millennia

Chimps with hammers

Chimps with bones

Twirling them like batons

In the marching band

That is your DNA

I want to be editor of the chimpanzee register

Tagged in XML

Pencilling in code

Of who's here

Who's not

Focusing the lens

On why you are

Summoning the chimps

Just to be sure

It's too hot to be naked

Solely on paper

So unzip

Unzip

Try this on

Or disappear
