Poemosaurus Rex

I am dead.

Dead and gone and yet still I live on,

They say.

Perhaps they are right, but my towering might,

My fierce "run-for-cover", teeth like no other

Are somewhat reduced, don't you think?

My preposterous size stopped not my demise,

And diminished, I have to confess,

That I'm dubious yet, I might place a bet,

That they're pedalling slander and lies.

This morning I doodled and then I said doo,

Does that sound awfully monstrous to you?

But don't be too blasé , or see me as passé,

This avian beast will prevail.

I'm watching. I'm waiting. Yes, and I'm hating.

These bright beady eyes so poorly disguise

That I know a thing or two.

I've been here much longer than you.

Authors note: I recognise that I am playing fast and loose with the science here! My apologies to any one that reads this with their teeth clenched. But its just for fun, right?

    Wow! 🤩 What an hilarious poem, especially if you wrote it late at night and tired!🤣

    You made them sinister!

  • Well-wrought, especially the clever wordplay! And as for the science, fast and loose is what the daring do, so don't be a chicken... ahem...

    I am pretty sure that some of those lizards and such are dinosaurs in disguise, one day they will regain their size and take over the world again. Yep, they are watching.
