Dragons - Poem by John Bliven Morin

Consider the dragons
of medieval tales;
could they have been real
as tigers and whales?

Long before humans
evolved on this earth
there were plenty of dragons
of small and large girth.

We don't call them dragons
today with their roars,
but that's what they were,
though we say 'dinosaurs.'

They say a great meteor
made them extinct,
except for the birds
and pre-mammals, they think.

But what if a few,
the great blast survived;
a few here and there
continued and thrived,

And human-kind feared them
and killed all they found,
until there werent any
great dragons around?

That's why many cultures
world-wide tell such tales;
their memories of dragons,
immense and with scales!
