dominant gene

dominant gene
by LeRoy Gorman

triceratops & pterosaur
ribs & wings fine dining
for the discerning time traveler
that’s what the sign said
where I met the vegan
Cro-Magnon temptress
I gave up my meat-eating ways
went back with her to a cave
in the hills of southern France
& we had offspring a little off in looks
but close enough to blend in
