Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Last Laugh Layers
Here the ancient seas are dry.
Here the gravesites all pile high.
Here Jurassic, Cenozoic;
all dead fossils, some heroic.
Some in pieces, tooth and nail,
lie buried in the local shale.
 
The dino wake starts. Goodness gracious,
time to party through Cretaceous.
Here’s a glass, so meteoric,
raised to toast the prehistoric.
Do we miss them? Now and then.
But we survivors say, “Amen.”
