Amadeus the Pirate

Amadeus the pirate with his long slender neck

rescued his crew amidst a massive shipwreck

with his sharp scaly tail

he  steered an enormous-sized vessel

with his dinosaur height

he could wade at sea level

his carnivorous teeth

were the first things you saw

his grinning incisors 

the sharpest swords of all

he could draw in his air 

changing strong ocean currents

other pirates’ chests empty 

…his size a deterrent

with an effortless sweep 

capturing all the sea’s loot

a Caribbean superhero 

in a prehistoric green suit!

Gwendolen R.

    Second child hood Gwennie? You manage to dig up these treasures and bring them to us always in your unique way. This prehistoric sure has a life of his own! Luv, Lizzie
