My Childhood Fantasy

The Ichthyosaurus became the Dolpin and the Plesiosaurus became the Penguin,
The Kronosaurus became the Turtle and the Nodosaurus became the Tortoise,
The Mosasaurus became the Alligator and the Euoplocephalus became the Crocodile,
The Archaeopteryx became the Parrot and the Quetzacoatlus became the Pelican,
The Pteranodon became the Eagle and the Dimorphodon became the Owl,
The Elasmosaurus became the Snake and the Coelophysis became the Lizard,
The Cearadactylus became the Bat and the Eudimorphodon became the Hawk,
The Styracosaurus became the Rhino and the Cetiosarus became the Elephant,
The Ankylosaurus became the Porcupine and the Triceratops became the Buffalo,
The Argentinosarus became the Zebra and the Edomtosaurus became the Tiger,
The Rhamphorhynchus became the Dove and the Pterodactylus became the Raven,
The Diplodocus became the Camel and the Deinonychus became the Donkey,
And this was yester-year which became part of my childhood fantasy;
So learn more about some of the names of the Dinosaurs.

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
