BIRDS POEMS: 

THE REIGN OF THE TERROR BIRD

THE TERROR BIRD

By Josie Whitehead

Terror Bird (The)

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.
