Grin and Bear it

Manchester Museum, 1st March 2021

It’s not easy being king of the dinos

you’re buried under the land

for what seems like ages

and kept away from the sun

so you take a bit of a nap

all of a sudden, something with teeth like yours

is uncovering you, in the cold

and they’re using your bones like a jigsaw puzzle

all put together in a grand place of learning

the other dinos around in the space dont say very much

but the descendants of the cavemen are all pointing their magic boxes at you

so you pose and you smile at the little uns below

as you give them a grin

Rex

Rex – Silhouette

Salford (via Manchester Museum), 20th June 2020

King of the Dinosaurs!

woken up by the sound of a wide brush,

and now sitting proud in a grand hall

towering over us all

while human children look and read,

what he liked, for a feed.

The box

#promptuarium

sat by the sea shore

left by some peg legged pirate

locked treasure awaits

uncovered booty

hidden away for decades

awaiting release

precious gold and jewels

lie sleeping in the casket

waiting for a key
