The dilapidated House across the street had seen better days.
The man who had built it and raised a family, had died in his living room years ago. It was turned into a duplex and fell into disrepair..easy prey for a hungry Excavatorsaurus Rex.
This morning the E Rex attacked!
As the weakened Duplexicus sat watching the morning traffic, the E Rex inflicted a crippling blow from behind...
then the ferocious Excavatorsaurus Rex reached up and over with it's huge, terrifying, jaws, grabbing the Duplexicus by the head, snapping it's spine...
before dealing a coup de grâce with a vicious strike that penetrated the very heart of the placid beast!
Then the E Rex started to tear off huge chunks and sat down to leisurely devour it.I felt helpless, but there was nothing that I or anyone else could have done to renovate it. ..I mean resuscitate... the Law of the Urban jungle had prevailed . Nature was taking it's course.
Scavengers came out of nowhere and collected valuable internal organs, like copper, and as soon as it began, it was all over.
Life went on as if nothing had happened...
except now I'll have a view of the River, atleast until Spring when a new Homeosaur arrives.
"Doo Doo Doo
Lookin' out my front door"
