dinosaur raging in the bar
ancient relic of the past, and
bloody battles revisited

toss your lasso, gang!
bring it down if you can!
buck the reigns and pull hard!

muster all your courage!
bring the menace down!
kick it! – do not give up!

ignore the teeth,
the stinking breath,
and deafening roar!

pulsing, biting, seething ferocity-
it will not defeat us!
overcome the beast!

maintain, succumb not to fear!
dig your heals in!
it will all be over soon…

the tab is finally paid,
it leaves the bar, into the night
and She can drink in peace
