“Hall of the Dinosaurs” sits ‘bove the great
Weight of the history museum down there,
Where all that was a la mode now preserved
Reserved as a lesson for us on what
Clear-cut reasons are now daguerreotypes,
Stereotypes of yestreens of the mind.
Kind blurbs familiarize us as guests;
Requests for a caramelized lesson
Lessen the chains of the savage cycle
Archetypal of being here and now.
How the human person could see all that,
At the ever-present bat, and not be at awe,
Haw at the juxtaposition of them;
Some may even try to consume it all.
