A Dinosaur Opera

Feedloader (Clickability)

Paleontologists have long wondered about the symphony of sounds some dinosaurs might have made, but could they have sung opera? Such an event would certainly be more interesting to me than a regular performance of Don Giovanni, and poet Katy Evans-Bush recently put her idea of a dinosaurian performance in verse. It begins;

There will be a dinosaur opera one day; leaf-eaters will roam the stage and carnivores lift their diaphragms in song. Good old Pachysephalasaurus will sound his hollow baritone in hunger for beauty only, and the pterosaur will soar for the feeling, not because he has to.

The rest of the poem, and an interview with its author, can be found over at E-Verse Radio.
