Bring Me Moa by David C. Kopaska-Merkel

Bring Me Moa
David C. Kopaska-Merkel

Look at it
12 feet tall
quarter of a ton
that’s a gol durn dinosaur
why did it take
Cretaceous feathers
for us to see?
Ponderous tread
Earth shook
when those giant
3-toed feet
struck the ground.
Bring them back
dwarfing ostriches
laughing at rheas
(they just ain’t enough)
bring me a fit scion of the theropods
bring me moa

End of poem
