I want to be a Palaeontologist by Ethan Peno (Highly Commended)

If l was a palaeontologist l would look for fossils all day long.
It wouldn’t really matter if I got the skeleton wrong. 
I would travel around the world looking for new breeds,
Learning about how a dinosaur lays eggs, lives and feeds.
What made the dinosaurs all die?
No-one really wonders why.
Maybe an explosion or lack of food?
If l find out I’ll be a cool dude.
I hope one day my wishes come true,
Being a palaeontologist is what I want to do.
