Poem by Arthur Guiterman
The Great Tyrannosaurus
The Great Tyrannosaurus Lived centuries ago; Through marshes wet and porous He rambled to and fro. The most tremendous Lizard That ever browsed on meat, His length from A to Izzard Was forty-seven feet. The Great Tyrannosaurus In habitude was not What one would call decorousЧ He ate an awful lot. Lamellibranchs in sixes, Iguanodons to spare, And Archaeopteryxes Comprised his bill of fare. The Great Tyrannosaurus Of all the world was king; With trumpeting sonorous He swallowed everything. When everything was swallowed Beneath the azure sky, What naturally followed?Ч The Creature had to die. The Great Tyrannosaurus That was so blithe and free Hath passed away before us; Then learn from him and me: This earth can never nourish An appetite like his, So if you hope to flourish, Don't gobble all there is!
