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!
