"Jurassic Pride" by Ross Balcom, Frequent Contributor

Jurassic Pride

O pterodactyls,
I give you life again.

Summon your Jurassic pride,
and take to the skies.

Swarm and destroy
the steel usurpers;

be the heralds
of the Reptile God.

Winged warriors,
emissaries of the recharged sun,

seize your birthright--
the deathless blue!

Ross Balcom

Poet's Notes: I am fond of pterodactyls, those flying reptiles of the Jurassic Period. I would feed them my own flesh.
