Yes, that satire on evolution is evident in 'Sweeney Erect' as well: 

"Sweeney addressed full length to shave	
  Broadbottomed, pink from nape to base,	
Knows the female temperament	
  And wipes the suds around his face.	
 
(The lengthened shadow of a man	          
  Is history, said Emerson	
Who had not seen the silhouette	
  Of Sweeney straddled in the sun)."
