TOP Letter to the editor.

For attention of
Mister T Rex, Editor.
Dear Sir, Or should that be Sire? for you see in my book, T Rex is King.
Anyway, I dug up this big thing, the other day in the Jura.
I thought it was a dead hound at first, but then I found this massive tooth.
And the first thing I thought about was you and your dead good magazine.
I read it all the time man, sorry I mean Sir, or should that be Sire?
I'm only asking 'cos it's polite and good manners to enquire.
So anyway, let me get down to the gist of it, I wrote a rhyme.
It was a poem about my find, and I took a photo for it too.
I thought you just might publish it, like Totally Optional Prompts do.
It starts like this - Don't talk to me about dinosaur bones, hell I've got...
It's all in the package that I sent to you, hey did you hear about...?

Oh No, you didn't think it was a bomb did you? I heard about the blast...


  1. How fun is this? Absolutely. Love it and all its ramifications.

  2. well the original on which you based this was a must read!!!! i spend to much frickin' time at the excavation site,, and need to get my happy ass into the present day... lovely reminder,, and the letter to the editor was a hoot too.......

  3. i have to agree with all the nice ladies above andy. this one is actually quite reasonable. i like the rhymes and repetitions of sounds in the middle of lines, rather than end of them. bravo.

  4. Subtle, but explosive :-)

  5. This was a clever piece - I, too, like the rhyme in the middle. Innovative!

  6. Thanks to everybody for taking the time to post a comment, It really does make it all worth while.

  7. Thanks Amara, I'm glad you got to read it anyway!
