Toerannosaurus Rex

Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore, Maryland

Slowly, it turns its head your way—
The beast can smell your fear.
Its lips draw back along its teeth—
It knows that you are near.

With every monstrous step it takes,
The beast imprints the ground;
But even moving earth this way,
It hardly makes a sound.

Its eyes are red in the moonlight,
Pools of the blood they seek.
And the beast is hunting for you,
So small and scared and weak.

Mid-stride it halts and turns to stone—
The beast has heard a noise.
Perhaps you cried or just exhaled—
It listens and enjoys.

So near now, it drools just a bit,
An acrid, slimy rope.
And as the beast rounds the last bend,
It knows you have no hope.

It breaks through brush in one great leap,
And at the sight of you,
The beast knows it was very wrong—
You’re more than it can chew!


Farfar is Here!

Farfar is here from Sweden,
And we’re having so much fun!
First things first, of course,
I introduced him to everyone:
My “Tigger Baby” and “Pink Doggy,”
Were first to say their hellos.
Then my Disney friends appeared,
Followed by my pack of Dinos.
He toured the zoo,
And found the Ark.
I played the keyboard,
And made Violet bark.
I can tell he likes them all,
And they really like him too!
And that’s a big relief–
Cause we have lots of playing to do!
