The Extinction

Yo!
Dinosaur!
Yeah you,
you with the three sharp points

You're special
you're the first
yes, the very first
you don't know it
you can't see it
but here it comes
and you're the first
(being first is what counts)

Makes you think, huh?
Well, maybe it don't.
I gotta go now
cos here comes the meteor bye!

Bangsplat.

the triceratops in question
