Huge dinosaurs lived on our earth

    A long, long time ago -

But why they disappeared from earth

    Is something we don’t know.


Did an asteroid bump into Earth

    And throw dust into space -

And did this mean our precious sun

    Could not then show its face?


Well look up at the warming sun

    That shines high in our sky

And tell yourself that without sun

    Most life on earth would die.


Perhaps volcanoes caused the dust

    That blocked our sun from sight

For they spew out volcanic ash

    With all their power and might.


Then, there again an ice age could

    Have brought about their fate

By freezing water that they drank

    And killing things they ate.


Disease kills living things, we know,

    Both creatures large and small.

Oh - scientists have wracked their brains

     To know what did befall.


We only know that left on earth

    Are bones they’ve left behind,

So when you’re digging with your spade,

    You don’t know what you’ll find.


Genetic science tells us much

    And stored within a bone

Are lots of things we understand

    Which were, before, unknown.


You’ll marvel at the size and shape

    Of the dynamic dinosaur

And want to learn so many facts

    That you never knew before.
