More Poems About Dinosaurs

and Cats


“Write a Poem!”, my Daughter said,

“About the mighty Dinosaur!”

“Ye Gods!” I thought (inside my head),

“I’ve not one single Metaphor,


Or Simile about the Beasts!

Why not a Poem about Cats instead?”

But wait!.. Ideas arise like Yeast,

Inside the Dough that maketh Bread!

Imagination now released

The Poet confidently crowed,

“Why there’s an Epic here, at least,

Worse comes to Worse

there’ll be an Ode!”


The Poet warms now to his task

like Reptiles ‘neath an ancient Sun

when on some river-bank they bask..

Hmm, what this Poem needs now is a Pun!

“Oh NO! Not that!” my Daughter croaked

with her Mother (both in chorus),

“Next there’ll be some awful Joke

about the awesome, giant Thesaurus!”


“I’ve changed my Mind!” she said, succinct,

“just write that Poem about the Cat”.

So, like God making Dinosaurs extinct,

I End this Poem, just like.. that.
