Plant Eater Gone
Stegosaurus is supposedly vegetarian,
but apparently it is not.
Why else was a thirty-nine-year-old man
found upside-down dead,
reaching for his cellphone,
in the belly of the stegosaurus
outside the Cubic Building
in Santa Coloma de Gramenet, Spain?
Obviously, he was eaten head-first
before dropping his cell and reaching for it.
