Apologies to Shakespeare
The noble raptor seeks a rock with sun;
Upon the rock he rests his scaly head.
Such laziness he does consider fun;
To perch upon a crag as if a bed.
He deftly preens his scales in the harsh light;
“A very dapper specimen I am!”
He smiles a toothy grin of sheer delight;
“There is no finer dino than Sir Tam!
I love to lounge about,–yet well I know
My awesome skills are needed elsewhere soon;
Although not yet have I been called to go;
My mistress when she calls, is quite the loon.”
The fearsome reptile from repose did rise;
To launch attacks of buttsecks by surprise.
Think you can do better? Enter the contest.
