The Pteranodon’s Plight


I am a Pteranodon, here is my plight:
Nobody ever quite gets my name right.
My name is pronounced without saying the “P.”
It’s a pterrible ptongue-ptwisting ptrouble for me.

But my pterosaur problem isn’t really so bad,
When there’s so much Pteranodon fun to be had!
I look like a dinosaur, and soar like a bat,
With a beak like a bird and sharp claws like a cat.

I’m a little like all these critters, but you see
I’m actually dinosaur-, bat- and bird-free!
I’m a soaring original with singular style,
I’m a pterrible, ptongue-ptwisting flying reptile.
