21. The Triassic: The Rise of a New Empire

On strong back legs of Plateosaurs and Ceolurosaurs
The dinosaurs built their powerful empire.
They were the noble ancestors of great kings.
Claiming the land as their own.
Walking through mighty forests of
The Post Permian aftermath.
Surveying their kingdom with strong eyes,
Sharp teeth
And swift foot.
They knew
One day
They will be great.
The small Ceolophysis
Who ran among the ferns
Dreamt of that day
When others would tremble at his descendants’ mighty roar
And fear the name of the tyrant king.
He knew the prosauropods
Towering over him
Eating the tops of trees
Would meet their match
In the new Eden that is to come.
