Stegosaurus Stands Tall

A Poem about Resilience in Adversity

Since we've got a challenge to write a poem about a dinosaur, I thought of the quintessential reptilian beast, the Stegosaurus. 

This Prince of Beasts may not roar like Rex, but is no pushover either. The gigantic herbivore, like all other dinosaurs, is a fount of ancient wisdom and mystery, with a deep connection to the distant past. What is more significant is what it stands for. 

And that is holding its ground. With its plates and spiked tail, it probably wasn't easy prey for Rex and the other carnivorous dinosaurs. And since it stood firm, it had much better chances than other diminutive dinosaurs of being left alone. 

We learn from this gigantic herbivorous beast to be resilient in adversity (yes, there are many Tyrannosauruses out there) and to stand firm when challenged or overwhelmed. 

Enjoy these Haikus

The Stegosaurus

A fount of sagacity

Beast of olden days

Mighty herbivore

Spiked tail swings around with force

Plates hold it to ground

Steadfast Stegosaur

Never wears down when flesh tears

Stands firm in hardship.

    Knowledge in poetic form is mighty good stuff. I don't know much about dinosaurs but I do think I like the idea of them more now. Brilliant!
