As a caterpillar crunches
All those lovely leafy lunches,
Does it raise its little eyes
To the butterfly-filled skies?
Does it watch them as they dance?
Does it wish for just one chance
To escape its leafy place,
And fly free in light and space...
What do dinosaurs learn
At carnivore school?
How to swagger and strut,
How to cruise and be cool...
