Prehistoric Living

They roamed the earth with supreme distinction
Evolution prior mass extinction
Of giant forms, dominate thy land
Exceptional findings to understand

To recover and discover, fossils of old
To reconstruct, reform the mould
Fine tools to chip, we hammer away
Extracted fossils, in rocks they lay

Science of discovery, working replica
Evidence of skin and that of feather
The Mesozoic era, before catastrophe
Continents found, thy land and sea

Furry mammals, reptiles of the time
Dazzling dinosaurs crawling from the slime
Non-flowering trees, appearing tall
Conifers and mosses, plants of all

The varied forms, at the least complex
The Titanosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex
The Kronosaurus, beneath thy wave
Seizing for prey, beneath the cave

Born to adapt, hunters of the sky
Beak-like jaws of which to reply
Folded wings, yet stood to train
The great survivors that now remain
