Tyrannosaurus Rex by Zoologist is Perfume Poetry.

What is the terror falling before me?
It melts away my very heart like molten rock.
Cutting away courage with whetted teeth.
As sending shivers like fingernails against chalk.

A thick pain and decay arrive with the night
As goosebumps spread across my skin tonight.

I’ll be unknown to those who come later.
Just a simple relic of the fall.
But If they find my bones under the layers:
They’ll see a king who still went down standing tall.

A thick pain and decay arrive with the night.
“Long Live the King,” long after tonight.

  1. I know, I know
    I sound like Julie Andrews

    Jasmine, Cedar, Vanilla, Sandalwood and the Laurel Leaf … these are some of my favourite things.

    The hills are alive with the scent of TREX

    Look, what it took
    To beget the T

    I have no answer to the thick pain and decay… makes me feel empty

    But this too is the hallmark of outstanding poetry.
