Dinosaur Poem For Lucy


Oh, what was it like

When huge dinosaurs roamed

On a sweating tropical Earth?

Some bigger than buses

And taller than houses,

All enormous of bone

And gigantic of girth!


With their small beady eyes

And huge gaping mouths

With hundreds of razor-sharp teeth,

And the roar and the snort

As they chased their prey,

And the stamp of their feet underneath!


Oh, what was it like when

Huge dinosaurs roamed?

I wish I had been there to see.

I’d love to have seen huge dinosaurs roam,

But I wouldn’t have asked one to tea!
