Pterodactyl Breast

Why not Jurassic Park this place for real.
John Hammond as new world Colonel Sanders.
Think about it. How many chickens does it take
to equal a pterodactyl? This is not a joke. Start
with the mosquito in the amber cane topper.
Blood DNA into eggs & pterosaur chicks. Alters
the timeline-answer to the annual philosophical
question of what came first. DNA. A twisted
ladder from the beginning of time. Twisting
& twisting, man, oh man. Tongues, truths, ropes,
roots, minds, hearts, twisted into knots & fear
& submission & hungry butterfly stomachs—
extra crispy fried genetic memory cries for the
mother would have the people droolin’ & soppin’
it up with some biscuits. One pterodactyl breast
could feed a small town, pterodactyl tenders
so tender, fixin’ for that spicy dino double helix.
