Dinosaurs: Are We Next? ... [dinosaurs; Extinction; Mankind's Future; Noah; Kind Of Short] - Poem by Bri Edwards
The Dinosaurs entered Noah's Ark, two by two,
until his boat was full and Noah cried 'Shoo shoo! '
So some were saved from the Biblical flood,
and lived on a bit longer, with their cold blood.
Something BIG must have happened on Earth then,
‘cause those flood survivors died off; we know not when.
I mean they ALL died off, and no more are found,
though rumors of Dinos, here and there, still abound.
From the gigantic Profanisaurus** and T Rex,
to others which, next to Rex, looked like specks,
all the Dinosaurs disappeared; no more paths they beat,
whether they were plant-eaters or eaters of meat.
There are theories about what caused their demise,
but no real proof's been found. That's no surprise.
Perhaps it was a meteor impact or volcanic eruptions,
which cased their hearts or lungs to have …… 'interruptions'?
Lizards and turtles were left, and some may say ….
'These are surely small Dinos we see at play.'
Mammals, including Man, and birds (my friends) for sure,
have taken control of areas where Dinos once were.
So that's the brief saga of Dinos here on Earth.
I hope you readers liked it, for what it was worth.
And now, in 2015, (A.D.) , another question, some of us, does vex.
'Will humans follow in The Dinos' footsteps? Are WE next? '

Poet's Notes about The Poem
**Profanisaurus is the nickname of my PH friend John Westlake. i first wrote Brontosaurus. i think Profanisaurus's neck is shorter!
dinosaurs was one of my childhood interest. another was ice cream.
