DIY Survivor

Do or Die

The ancient Archaeopteryx had never turned a wing

Or lifted her substantial claws to help with anything;

She wielded her impressive bill, but only to express

Disdain for any task but what advanced her happiness

Exclusively, for she believed herself the focal point

Of all existence on the earth; her nose got out of joint

When anyone would question her supremacy as Queen.

You’ll notice, now, that she’s extinct, and never since been seen.Digital illo: The Archaeopteryx's Mistake

  1. Extinct or not, you have to admit she’s a bit grand. Not quite bird, not quite dragon, but all dinosaur, (and still a Queen), for sure. She would approve of your momentary recognition. ๐Ÿ™‚
