A midweek special – on the spree
The cinema it has to be
While others drink at street cafés
I put the world on hold today.
Who recalls Jurassic Park -
An action-packed primeval lark?
Special effects on a wide screen
A darkened room, a piercing scream
As a dinosaur, long thought extinct
Makes unsuspecting tourists blink
Pandemonium breaks out, people flee
Is it credible what we see?
Well, Spielberg's tried it once again
The re-jigged formula's a strain
Huge eggs crack, black claws escape
Meddling with DNA can make
A weird and scary new creation;
To train it is a huge temptation
Could it be harnessed, sent to fight?
We somehow almost feel it might...
The film's a romp, fear mixed with thrill
Hollywood goes for overkill;
With Charlie, Echo, Delta, Blue
Claire and the ranger see it through!
