A dinosaur graveyard
On some distant planet
Where humans now live.

A dinosaur graveyard
On some distant planet
Where humans now live.

Giant rib cages
Tower into the sky,
Like construction girders.

Girders of some building
Strangely left abandoned,
Nowhere near finished.

Creaking in the wind
Dinosaur skeletons,
Still almost seem alive.

A dusty trail winds
Beneath the giant framework,
Of the great boneyard.

Men and beasts travel
Along the trail, uncaring
Of what stands above.

Long-dead goliaths
Barely even noticed,
By passing travellers.

On some distant world
Leviathan remains,
Towering overhead.
