A Jurassic Duel - Poem by Syed Ahmed Shah

Eyes blazing,
Tails waving,
They plunge at each other for turf;
Spotting an opportunity to survive
The prey runs off with its life.

Teeth digging into necks,
Oblivious of the world,
The reptiles are locked
In a mortal combat.

Suddenly,
One of them, losing its grip,
Free-falls through the air
And noisily lands
On my feet…

Momentarily pausing and
Shaking its head,
It dashes across the floor and
Climbs up the wall to take-up
A fresh position…

And I
Come back from
The Jurassic Age…
