Beware the Dinotoad! (A poem for children)


Beware the screeching Dinotoad,
the child catching tongue,
body wider than your road,
being gobbled won't be fun.

The Dinotoad is coming,
it left the despairing marsh,
you'd better all start running,
it's cruel, it's mean and harsh.

The eyes as big as tyres,
the teeth as sharp as knives,
it belches little fires,
it eats up folk alive!

Oh beware the grizzled Dinotoad,
beware that vile thing,
if it arrives on your road,
then chaos it will bring.

I know Dinotoad is real,
my brother told me so,
and children it does peel,
then chomp ‘em really slow.

'Now darling don't be silly! '
that's what my mummy said,
but I wasn't being silly,
I saw it beneath my bed!

I guess I'll have to fight it,
perhaps give it a whack,
I'll grab its leg and bite it,
then tie it in a sack.

I'll be proclaimed a hero,
maybe I'll be knighted,
I'll never again feel a zero,
when Dinotoad is sighted!
