While this is a blog of silly poetry, I think poetry can also be used to change the world for the better. I would like to raise awareness of a matter that has been weighing on my heart recently. The T-Rex has been villainized by western media such as Jurassic Park or Walking With Dinosaurs. It’s been accused of being everything from a ruthless predator to a pathetic scavenger. Even in extinction, the T-Rex has no respite from this self-contradictory and cruel slander. I think it’s all too easy to hate giant cretaceous lizards who never experienced the same love we do.
Amnesty For T-Rex
T-Rex’s arms were far too short
To hug a friend or stroke a face
So let’s not demonise a child
Who never felt his Mum’s embrace
