  • The Discovery

    Discovery

    In a former quarry pit alias Eden Project
    A scientific discovery we did not expect
    A fossil gigantic, a huge dinosaur skull bone
    Dug from under the earth a new species unknown

    Archaeologists gathered to discuss and decide
    Why this dinosaur skull had such a huge brain inside?
    Only one theory did they advance and propose
    A dinosaur with language skills they did suppose

    A wordy dinosaur they called the Thesaurus
    Did it compose dinosaur songs with verse and chorus
    Punctuate its sentences with antonyms and synonyms
    Prehistoric grammar, strict rules , were more than a whim

    Did it face fierce predators and give them some lip
    Dismiss the Trex with a witty well aimed quip
    Sharing romance stories with the Brontesaurus
    Form a novel bookclub that came long before us

    Reptile giants communicate, teasing with banter
    Debating philosophy to find out the answers
    A long lost world parked in the Jurassic period
    Thesaurus conversation, topics are myriad

    All that
    Has gone
    Before we look
    At in vacant wonder.
    They ruled, yet they were
    Dancing on precipitous
    Jura. Snuffed out by the
    Chicxulub meteor
    Now it's our turn
    To teeter to
    billion-fold ends
    Manifold in number
