Like a scene from a whacky teen film
the three cavemen – recently discovered frozen in a block of ice –
came to life
and escaped through the back door of the natural history museum.

Caveman number one,
the less smart of the trio,
was instantly killed by a bus.

Caveman number two,
the more masculine one of the trio,
got annihilated by a tube trying to hunt it for food.

And Caveman number three,
the most sensitive, more evolved of the trio,
was reminded by a commuter that you must
walk up the left hand side of the escalator
and subsequently died of embarrassment.
