And they hooted, “Up with rivers!” And they hooted, “Up with reeds!” And they hooted, “Up with bellyfuls of juicy water reeds!”
~In a prehistoric river in a prehistoric swamp, lived a herd of duckbill dinosaurs who liked to stand and chomp. ~Now across the rushy river, on a hill the other side lived a mean tyrannosaurus with his grim and grisly bride.
Now a little compsognathus (but for short we’ll call her comp) found a duckbill egg and stole it from a nest beside the swamp.
And she swam with it. And she ran with it. And she murmured, “Clever me!” And, “Won’t the baby comps be thrilled with duckbill for…” “…T!” She dropped the egg in terror and went running for her life from the mean tyrannosaurus and his grim grisly wife.
And the duckbill egg went rolling, and it at last came to rest in-of all unlikely places-the tyrannosaurus nest. Now the mother T had great big jaws and great enormous legs, but her brain was rather little, and she couldn’t count her eggs.
Out hatched babies one and two, as perfect as could be, but mother T was horrified by baby number three. And she grumbled, “He looks weedy,” and she grumbled, “He looks weak.” And she grumbled, “What long-arms look, his mouth is like a beak!”
Drip’s sisters soon grew big enough to hunt with Dad and Mom, but they turned on Drip and told him, “You’re not fierce enough to come.” And he cried, “They’ve gone without me,” and he cried, “Alackaday!”
You're not fierce enough!
