A Poem About The T-Rex

Eighty million years ago,
Back in the Late Cretaceous,
Lived the great Tyrannosaurus,
A frightening and predacious
Dinosaur of gruesome size!

He weighed six tons or more!
He was the definition of
the significant carnivore!

His jaws had teeth like railroad spikes!
With fore and aft serrations,
The dental hardware was designed
for quick excavations!

With thrashing bites and awful roars,
The T-rex would attack!
He was, it’s clear, that it was a
savage maniac!

Imagine then, the panic caused,
The horror and the mayhem,
When this monster came to town,
And ate some folks this A.M!

It’s a sight few will forget!
He lunged into the crowd,
Everyone went into panic,
The screams were long and loud!

People pushed to get away,
The elderly and small,
Were trampled underfoot,
By the advancing human wall!

At last the menace ate its fill,
The big tyrannosaur,
Stomped away to parts unknown,
where he had lived before.

Tyrannosaurs, almost never seen,
Are definitely still around.
No-one knows just when or where
the next one will be found.

...except me.
