a small poem ~~ about a Megafauna
Do you believe in dinosaurs?
Did you ever see one alive?
They walked the earth in days of old
Or so they say, they being some
Could be biggest farce ever known
Larger than dreamt by Orson Wells
Seen even one, monsters? Not me
Thousands of years ago, they say
Bones by the gobs dug up they've been
Anthropology, science counts
Counts those bones as bankers their gold
Screwed up all, theoretical
Museums take your dough rob you blind
Ripley's 'Believe it or Not,' not
Children believe, they have not seen
I don't believe, one I've not seen

Today I'm linked with Gillena in the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, Fashion me Your Words ~ Megafauna,
Small? She has requested that we contain ourselves to exactly 100 words. Mine is exactly, counting the title.
1. In terrestrial zoology, megafauna (Ancient Greek mégalo "large" + New Latin fauna "animal") are large or giant animals
2. My first college alma mater, The University of Nebraska (Go Bid Red!!!), has the nicest museum, called Elephant Hall. Elephant Hall has many skeletons of the ancient elephants, but also the world's best college collection of the extinct Dinosaur skeletons as well. Who wouldn't believe after seeing the remnants of these magnificent creatures?
