Dear Ankylosaurus

A Poem

By Josey PickeringPublished about a month ago 1 min read

Dear Ankylosaurus,

you are my very favorite ancient creature.

I think you’re incredibly underrated,

As Tyrannosaurus Rex seems to always be the feature.

You weren’t too small but you weren’t quite tall,

you paled in sized to almost all of the sauropods.

Bigger than a microraptor or Dilong,

your boney plates & club tail helped you fight against the odds.

You liked to eat ferns which aren’t my taste,

but I’ve read you also liked to eat fruit too.

I would gladly share some fruit with my favorite dinosaur,

we could make a whole fruit salad… would that do????

Sometimes I wish I could meet you in reality,

Feed you ferns and fruit right now!

However it would be much harder to hide a dinosaur,

than say a pig, sheep or even a cow.

So I just have these moments in my dreams,

where reality is anything I want it to be.

Where I can write a letter to my favorite dinosaur,

and he can know just how much he means to me.

For Fun
