1. Dinosaurs were Birds and “not even a Sparrow falls apart from the Father” (Matthew 10:29)
God was in a joyous mood
When He created Birds!
That fifth yom He went feather-wild!
So herds and hoards and flocks of Birds!
From Mountains high to Oceans blue.
This World was theirs, forever so!
Eternal-Now was all they knew!
And it was all that they COULD know!
They roared and danced
And sung and pranced,
And grew and GREW
And GREW and GREW!
For sixty-million, dragon years
They tended their young
And ruled the skies!
The few who saw the bad rock fall
Gazed calmly with unknowing eyes!
One moment live, the next one, dead!
(To think such rocks still out there: D*r*e*a*d!!!!)
In Just one breath most Birds were GONE!!!
But Mammals lived and carried on!
Then along came Humanity,
With our Divine Insanity.
0ur Crazy-Dream that
Death could DIE!!
But is that silly, really?
Really, really silly?
When Quadrupeds l
Had learned to fly?
So we grew up in ALL WAYS into Christ.*
Lost our meanness, became nice!
And We built Ourselves a Treasure-Square!*
All of life and love are there!
Covered in millions of flashing jewels!
Nothing and never is anything cruel!
Kindness and Joy, Logic and Love,
Always, always, ALWAYS the rule!
With every environment wild or tame
From Bedford Falls to Istanblane
Anything that you could want!
From Gems and gold to Elephants!
We grew up in All Ways Into The Word,*
Who vowed that not one, Single Bird
Would fall apart,
From His gentle Mind
And His Gracious Heart!*
(Now remember: Sixty-million years of them!)
So! Angel’s choir practice: Session One.
A T-Rex joins in! Ain't that fun?!
Admiring a verdant Forest?
Here scurries a flock of Apatosaurus's!
My mansion shouldn’t be for Birds!!
For herds and Hoards and flocks of Birds!
I don’t mean to fuss or rage,
But is this Heaven or a Big Bird Cage?!
