Monsters (Poem-A-Day 27)

DinosaurFor today’s prompt, write a monster poem. There are the usual suspects: zombies, vampires, werewolves, and mummies. But monsters can take any form and terrorize a variety of victims. So have fun playing around with this one, because we’ve only got a few days of April left.

Monsters

There were monsters
Millions of years ago
Terrible lizards
Who dominated the land
Until rapid climate change
Ignited by an asteroid
Ended their reign

Those that survived
Evolved into birds
Who insist from the trees
They were once great

Perhaps our descendants
Will cling to branches
Hiding in leaves
Alongside those birds
And yell harsh warnings
At our arrogant
Successors
