I doubt you would have liked us
If we ever were to meet
For we hunters were quite happy
When it was our time to eat!

For there, upon each paw
Was a great, big sickle-claw!
That cut through meat just like a knife
They were the last things dinos saw!

And I should be very famous!
As I was featured in a movie
The “Velociraptors” in “Jurassic Park”
Were actually based on “yours truly”!

“Velociraptors” are our cousins
But they are rather small!
Those raptors stand at just three-feet!
Whereas I am five-feet tall!

And guess what — I also had feathers!
These mistakes are enough to fuss!
For get it right, you movie buffs —
My name’s Deinonychus!
