The Spinosaurus

by Dan Campion

“A Swimming Dinosaur? Maybe Not, Study Says”
The New York Times

Did Spinosaurus swim, or not?
The experts don’t agree.
Their backs are up. Their discord’s hot,
As “prickly” as can be.
I only know, were I a fish
Sometime in the Cretaceous,
It would have been my fondest wish
To dodge its jaws predaceous.
