Fossils Are Fossils - Poem by Mr. Tom

Fossils are fossils,
Fossils are old.
They are fossils,
They are old.

Tertiary is a period of fossils.
It is a period of fossils.
Quaternary is a period of fossils.
It is a period of fossils.

Eocene is an epoch,
I have no idea what that is.
Oligocene is an epoch,
I have no idea what that is.

Miocene is an epoch,
I still have no idea what that is.
Pliocene is an epoch,
I still have no idea what that is.

Fossils are fossils,
Fossils are old.
They are fossils,
They are old.

Tertiary is a period of fossils.
It is a period of fossils.
Quaternary is a period of fossils.
It is a period of fossils.

Pleistocene is the final epoch,
Yet I am still undecided on what that is.
Its likeness to plasticine is great.
Nothing rhymes so I will wordinate.

Fossils are fossils,
Fossils are old.
They are fossils,
They are old.

Tertiary is a period of fossils.
It is a period of fossils.
Quaternary is a period of fossils.
It is a period of fossils.

I am a poem writer.
I am good.
Also known as a poet.
This is a poem good.

Fossils are fossils,
Fossils are old.
They are fossils,
They are old.

Tertiary is a period of fossils.
It is a period of fossils.
Quaternary is a period of fossils.
It is a period of fossils.

Fossils Are Indeed Fossils

    I was loving this until the 'Pleistocene' stanza and then I don't know what happened that one just kind of messed it up for me and i stopped reading but hey that's just me and i really felt something promising in it up until that point I guess partly to do with poking at the circular nature of linguistic axioms and tech language but not in a judging way which i liked.
