The Thylacine would snatch a pullet —
Soon the last one took a bullet.
On an island named Mauritius,
Lived the Dodo — so delicious.
The passengers that blackened skies
Were baked in lots of pigeon pies.
The Kingpin was the Dinosaur;
Until there came a meteor.
Neanderthals died out we know.
Their IQs were a bit too low.
