Bert the Burping Brontosaurus

Bert was a little Brontosaurus, and his appetite was amazing. He liked to chew and munch and slurp, Bert never stopped his grazing. But one day after eating, he felt a little strange. Something was brewing in his tum, and Bert didn't like the change. In little Bert's guts, there was gurgling, and his mouth he opened wide. And from it came a ginormous burp, that caused a small landslide. As the jungle around him fell silent, Bert clearly didn't know what to do. He didn't like the other dinos watching him, so he opened his mouth and yelled BOO! Well the dinosaurs went running in fright, as Bert smiled a nice toothy grin. It just goes to prove, no matter how small outside, what counts is what comes from within! Entered into: DINOSAUR(S) - FOR CHILDREN Poetry Contest Sponsored by Line Gauthier 3rd July 2019. Placed Joint 3rd.

Thank you. I was a bit shocked; I wasn't expecting the contest to be judged until the 12th of July! But a 3rd place...I'm rather pleased with that! Onwards and upwards :)

Great poem Rick. Kids do love burping. My poems tend to the other end. Have a great day.
