Anachronism


On the horizon under gothic black clouds,
The dinosaurs war for age upon age.

In just one of many bloody skirmishes,
Stegosaurus goes tooth-and-plate with a T-Rex.
They each shake their heads violently, vainly
Keeping their eyes clear of the rain for another bout.

The Tyrannosaur is horrified by the ancient-ness of the Stegosaur:
Sixty million years extinct,
Yet still here in front of him,
Impossibly.
