ANOTHER QUAKE AT DINO MART
Once there was a ginormous purple dinosaur.
His nickname was “Tiny”, and he was very poor.
One day he went stomping into the yummy store
wanting Fruity Pebbles; he didn’t have any more.
One old box was left on the shelf and it was ripped.
Irritated was Tiny, he trampled and flipped.
He ran full speed around the store, fell and he tripped,
the clerk saw it was slippery, then Tiny slipped!
The entire store trembled and shook from his fall,
other Dinos scared, it was Tiny after all.
Little did they all know his confidence was small,
Tiny landed in a nook and began to bawl.
Tears rolling down his nostrils like it was raining.
Other Dinos entered and started complaining.
Sore and meek was Tiny; the stress was so draining,
then he saw Fruity Pebbles! Much were remaining!
All over the floor was his favorite day treat.
Tiny poured milk all over and began to eat.
He was drowning in cereal down to his feet,
for they were so delectable and very sweet!
The next morn in the Saur Daily was the headline
“ANOTHER QUAKE AT DINO MART”; Tiny wasn’t fine!
But--- maybe it’s the only way to for him to dine
on Fruity Pebbles…tasty chills ran down his spine!
