the pterosaurs saw what happened that day
a second Sun dropped from the sky
the pressure wave blasted those closest to haze
and wafted their ashes on high
then hundreds more pterosaurs lifeless and torn
took flight in a terrible dance
broken umbrellas tossed far by the storm
untethered kites left to mischance
thousands of pterosaurs fell like dead leaves
caught up in sudden tumultuous seas
waves smashed the pterosaurs huddled on land
waves buried eggs under layers of sand
the dark wi
we've waited for ages, frozen in time
adrift on shale seas, or bedded in Lime
the dark is unkind, the earth presses down
there's hardly a hope we will ever be found!
but what is this clamour?, the earth itself trembles
and suddenly light, as of angels assembled!
she whispers "I'm sorry you waited so long"
and lovingly carries her Trilobite home.
A man brought a rock to a shop
said he "you should see what I've got!"
the shop owner glanced
he looked quite askance
he said "I can see what it's not!"
"It's not a Peruvian Meg
not a wonderful dinosaur egg
is this really a fossil?"
he seemed rather hostile
"i think you are pulling my leg!
theres no sign of trilobite here
no ammonite sutures are clear
...and you're right in my light
can't you please wait outside
or at least stand less terribly near!"
he held a fine loupe to his ey
There once was a man from Buffalo
He wasn't satisfied with Mid Devonian, he wanted Low
He dreamed of Euryptids,
that he could call his,
He'd better go to a fossil show
thank you fossil forum
i didn't know what my fossils were when I saw em
i brought home concretions
with interesting features
now i dont have to bring home any moreofum
there once was a state called Florida,
fear not La Brean
though your struggles are in vain
sleep for just awhile
no sound but water
i will trade with you fossil
its my turn to sleep
You heard me above
Walking in the winter snow
Did you count the days
cruel teeth of winter
gnashing in desperation
Ill get you next year
