Pinker

Steven Pinker
author linguist evolutionist
polemicist

extraordinaire

a curly haired
jewish philosophical 

would-be King Kong


but even after his

"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

wonders and is perturbed
by why music evolved

WTF What the hell? Huh?

Everything seemed settled.

But music:

What good does it do?

Darwinially

Darwinistically  

Whereas I, having felt the force of
his arguments must needs nevertheless ask:

Why has such a thing as Pinker

evolved

Darwinially
Darwinistically  

with what purpose?

if he can't imagine it

can't dance to it

How much, that is,

can he tell us?
