The Riddle Of The Dinosaur

Bert Lesten Taylor

Behold the mighty dinosaur, 
Famous in prehistoric lore, 
Not only for his weight and length, 
But for his intellectual strength. 
You will observe by these remains 
The creature had two sets of brains, 
The one in his head, the usual place, 
The other at his spinal base. 
Thus he could reason a priori 
As well as a posteriori. 
No problem bothered him a bit, 
He made both head and tail of it. 
So wise he was 
So wise and solemn 
Each thought filled just a spinal column. 
If one brain found the pressure strong, 
It passed a few ideas along. 
It something slipped the forward mind 
'twas rescued by the one behind. 
And if in error he was caught 
He had a saving afterthought. 
As he thought twice before he spoke 
He had no judgment to revoke. 
For he could think without congestion 
Upon both sides of every question. 
O gaze upon this noble beast, 
Defunct ten million years at least. 

Anonymous submission.
