Dinosaurs In Oxford Street - Poem by C Richard Miles
There's dinosaurs in Oxford Street,
A one-off exhibition;
Though you might never chance to meet
A stranger apparition.
Will T-Rex browse in Selfridges
Or trail round M & S?
And what Diplodocus might want
To do, I dare not guess.
Will flocks of Pterodactyl
Seem such a scary sight
Near Primark, close to Marble Arch
In the middle of the night?
Will herds of horned Triceratops
Cause hundreds of hearts to stop
If they thunder round the record shops
Or stop to pop in Top Shop?
Will savvy Stegasauruses
That must be in the know
Decline to dress in Bond Street
But plump for Savile Row?
Though stores like old John Lewis
Have been there for so long
In days of yore, dread dinosaurs
Grazed there, a reptile throng.
For Oxford Street saw dinosaurs
A thousand aeons back
In moist Jurassic marshes
Where modern shoppers pack.
So watch out for these monsters
Which are with us for a while
But be thankful, they're just models
And relax, amazed and smile!
