Between 243 and 233 million years ago…

     – of reptilian instinct –

Of Dinosauria,

You’d expect

A destined end,

In retrospect

Ye found inanely

Assails its planet,

And without limit,

Eating till extinct

Till its ensuing man,

Of reptilian instinct

Will aim to lord haver,

Tho world on the brink

Ne’er far from theory,

Be its fixed behaviour,

As man cued humans

Save beyond cavers,

Be Dinosaurians find

Of exploitive players,

Said prehuman specie 

In those dinosaur times!

              Ode to careless inflicted, Covid-19ers,

                             now on or beyond a life that goes on!

PS: Dinosaurs, as in Dinosaurian, first appeared during the Triassic period, between 243 and 233 million years ago and became extinct some 65 million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous Period. Thus so after living on Earth for about 165 million years. It would seem man need not fear for his longevity, for at our present rate of self destruct, we shall achieve extinction, in far fewer years than our dinosaurian forerunners!

  1. We have following the news from Quebec Jean-Jacques! Just now, Bonny Henry, our provincial health officer, has introduced new restrictions. I am glad that we have a vibrant virtual community during a time of social isolation.

  2. Thank you again, Paulette… Yes fixed behaviour does say a lot, but depending on which side of the coin one is playing, it can have consequences and not always of which we seek. Alas like everything else in life to which we aspire…
