Dinosaur Rock

A poem/song in response to the challenge

When the Earth was first born

and unexplored with lush greenness,

the Earth began to tremble,

as giant creatures emerged.

*

Stomp, stomp, and boom, boom

Do the dinosaur rock

As they came straggling along

Casting shadows, hiding the sun.

*

Dinosaurs majestic creatures of scale and claw,

With every step they took, the ground would quake.

Tails swept the path behind them and teeth looked for prey,

Crashing through the underbrush, frightening all who in their path would stray.

*

Stomp, stomp, and boom, boom

Do the dinosaur rock

As they came straggling along

Casting shadows, hiding the sun.

*

The mightiest of them all the T-Rex,

Scared everyone with his great roar.

Came the Brontosaurus, a gentle giant,

Looking for leaves, not prey.

*

Stomp, stomp, and boom, boom

Do the dinosaur rock

As they came straggling along

Casting shadows, hiding the sun.

*

Triceratops with horns, three to fend,

Against predators, they would defend.

Pterodactyls soared in the sky,

It was a wonder they could fly.

*

Stomp, stomp, and boom, boom

Do the dinosaur rock

As they came straggling along

Casting shadows, hiding the sun.

*

But time's relentless, unforgiving tide,

Extinction brought an end to the dinosaurs’ ride,

Now the fossils of these mighty giants lay in silent repose,

With dinosaur tales of a past that storytellers compose

*

Stomp, stomp, and boom, boom

Do the dinosaur rock

As they came straggling along

Casting shadows, hiding the sun.

*

So we dream of their thunderous calls,

In museums' hallowed halls

Dinosaurs, in history's deep embrace,

Forever part of our planet's face

*

Stomp, stomp, and boom, boom

Do the dinosaur rock

As they came straggling along

Casting shadows, hiding the sun
