My Uncle Owen was having tea with my mum when the topic turned to dinosaurs.
The next thing he said was this:

As lush river-grasses and leafy tree tops
It lolloped along
like a rabbit that lops
It trod on small creatures that burst with loud pops
Then, all of a sudden,
its history stops
Kind of sums up the whole of the Jurassic, huh? He says he learned it as a schoolboy nearly 60 years ago in Eastbourne, UK, but doesn’t remember who’s responsible for it. Here’s to science education that sticks.
