Fossils on Fire

Fossils are on fire;
Like the prehistoric days.
They burn in the ground;
With a red passionate haze.

Things once new;
Now so old.
They rot in the ground.
So bare and cold.

So large and fierce;
Animals that once roamed.
Paleontologists now seek;
There valuable, rigid bone.

The beast that sauntered;
Now lies in the ground.
Formerly sneered;
Now wears a long miserable frown.

A look in the past;
Sets our thoughts sinking.
But we will never know;
What the fired fossils are thinking.
