Poem a Day 15

This Is Why I Call the Holocene the Belle Epoch

What praises can we lavish on
Ichthyosaurus platydon?
Its only claim to glory hangs
Upon its slightly fewer fangs
Than other known ichthyosauri
Or than (to be quite frank) you or I.



Today’s prompt I cheated at, because I remembered “gaudy” as “glory,” and wrote most of this in while on a bicycle, only learning my error when I consulted a computer. But I left it as is.
