For this week’s #limerick challenge the boys requested a limerick about a dinosaur. I was struggling with something cumbersome involving a pedantic dinosaur that noticed every ‘minor flaw’ when my husband suggested a meteor. It’s a less exact rhyme but it lead to a more fun (if slightly grisly) limerick:
There once was an ill-fated dinosaur
Who was struck in the face by a meteor
It plunged in through his eye
Travelled out through his thigh
And splattered his innards across the floor.
As usual the boys illustrated it for me. My six-year-old drew an pre-meteor T-rex then another picture indicating the meteor’s point of entry and exit, complete with blood splatters. My four-year-old drew the third picture of the bloody remains. Sorry if that just put you off your breakfast!
