Un Début Scandaleux

by Dan Campion

“The First Dinosaur Feather Ever Found Is Still Controversial”

When Archaeopteryx stepped out
And strutted down the ramp
To flaunt that feather and to flout
The rules of scale, and vamp,

She shocked the mavens and her peers.
It’s still a rad design
A hundred fifty million years
Of Fashion down the line.
