“Dinner Dinosaur”  by Celia Berrell

Their dinosaur mother

left earlier on

as Sauropods never

cared for their young.

 

So baby-saurs scratched

from inside their shells

‘til together they hatched

from their eggy cells.

 

Their nest had a guest

of a hungry snake

just waiting for food

to hatch on its plate!

 

But snakes only munch

one mouthful for tea.

So hatching at once,

most babies ran free.

 

 

There’s safety in numbers … for some anyway!
