Wilkie The Cat In Drumheller: A Poem

August 6, 2016 at 12:48 pm (Comedy, Entertainment, Humour, Poetry) (, , , , , )

Drumheller, Alberta was the dinosaur capital of the world
Here T-Rex’s mighty bones had been unfurled
Wilkie the Cat was on his smart phone
boasting to Mitzi he’d find a T-bone
and he wasn’t talking about beef steak
but some carnivorous prehistoric rake

In the Badlands, Wilkie stood
dressed somewhat like Robin Hood
Why was he dressed in Lincoln green?
So he’d stand out against the scene
of white, gray and brownish cutbanks
which formed geological table ranks

Each layer told a story
sometimes somewhat gory
of Triceratops battling T-Rex
and horns coming out like bloodied specs
which T-Rexes found pains in the necks
But Wilkie would go home without a bone
although exploits he embellished to his audience’s groan.

    Nothing like a big T-bone to impress your friends. Tell Wilkie not to give up. His T-Rex is just an inch deeper and a foot further away. Which direction, I’m not sure. 😀

    Wilkie should be friend a dog.
    He digs out any treasure from down under in matter of minutes! LOL
