Dino Chat
So Dinosaurs, we've found their bones
We can work out what they eat
But we just don't know, quite how they sound
It's a palaeontology defeat.

Now could they talk
We think "No Way!"
But if they could
What would they say?

Tyrannosaurus probably walked around
Telling everyone "I'm in charge"
We can assume the others all said "yes"
'cos he was scary and quite large.

Apatosaurus had a big family
'twas called Diplodocidae,
He hung around in groups, ate veg.
Was quite a social guy.

At 30 meters long it's clear
Few would get in his way
As he lived in North America, I guess
He'd say "Yo! Have a Nice Day".

Triceratops was an armored brute
With three horns on his head
If a dinosaur said "excuse me please" he'd say
"I suggest you move instead."

Stegosaurus weighed five tons
Brain size that of a dog
With spines along his back he'd say
"Best, we don't play leap frog."

Velociraptors would hunt in packs
They were intimidating guys
The last words, you wouldn't want to hear
Is when they said "Surprise!"

Pterodactyls learned to fly
They loved the sky so clear
And way up high, you could hear them cry
"I can see my house from here."

So did they speak,
Or did they roar,
Did they moan, or groan
We're not quite sure.

But as we look upon their form
The fossils that we've found
It's good to wonder what they thought
And how they made thoughts sound.

Story behind the verse
I asked my Daughter Emilia to think of a subject and she came up with Dinosaurs talking.
