[ TSC ] Pray!

   
Straight from the Cretacious    
apex predator predates us †  
Over our modern kingdom it reins †  
Too huge for capture in any man-made cage †  
Trampling powerlines, derailing trains †  
† †
Consuming human flesh in rapacious rampage †  
world terrorized by The Deadly Mantis; †  
behemoth unleashed by climate change †  
Media's gone bananapants over this! †  
† †
Target acquired in rocket firing range †  
Impervious, the exoskeleton! †  
What's it gonna take to save the day? †  
† †
Perhaps this is a battle that can't be won †  
and we should get out of the monster's way! †
