infestus homo sapeinus
The city of London has a mice infestation ‘problem’. It doesn’t matter where you live, or how clean your home is, you have seen, or will see one of these little highly evasive rodents dash across your floor. It’s inevitable.
This mouse I spotted on a London Underground platform got me thinking; mice have always been a part of this city since before Roman times, and millennia before that. In probable fact, they arrived here first. Does it then follow that we have taken over their habitat?
Is this city hence suffering from a human infestation?
