Natural Selection

It has all gone nuclear down at the Oxford Poetry shop. Fingers pointed, huge intakes of breath, academic poison darts fired and Ruth Padell has resigned. I'm going to throw my hat in the poetic ring. No I'm not. More important things to do. But here's my poetic thoughts on the matter.

So, Ruth Padell
You have suffered at the hands
Of unnatural selection.
Your great, great, great
grandfather Charles Darwin
Would have had something to say.
Wouldn't he?
