THE REIGN OF THE TERROR BIRD
THE TERROR BIRD
By Josie Whitehead
With muscled legs, both strong and fleet;
With gaudy feathers, freaky feet;
With lengthy toes and massive claws:
The terror birds had monstrous jaws.
Top of the food chain in their day,
They spared no mercy on their prey.
With pick-axe beak they’d rip and tear
And neither you nor I they’d spare.
This dinosaur’s no longer here,
So neither you nor I should fear,
And, like all others, so it seems,
We’ll meet them only in our dreams.
