Not a Dinosaur

If a Thesaurus
came before us,
would it claw us?
Or even gnaw us,
as soon as it saw us?

Not really.
A Thesaurus is a book
stuffed full of words,
so it would probably
just ignore us.

About the Writer

Graham Seal

Once upon a time Graham Seal won the high school poetry prize – probably because he had more poems in the school magazine than anyone else. Since then he’s continued writing books, articles, songs and poems, many published, many yet to be.
