Dinosaurs’ Breakfast Special


Urns of slime

and reptiles’ heads,

giants’ feet

and mouldy breads.


Icy hearts

and mountain eggs,

a ton of tongues

and turtle-legs.


Frogs and beetles

chewed to gristle,

old pine cones

and spicy thistle.


Snake-flesh paste

and baby whales,

slowly simmering

heads and tails.


Blackfish eyes

and stingray skin

mixed and mixed

till slimy thin.


All gulped down

with spidery glue

which sleepy dinosaurs

forget to chew. . .
