trilobite w/bumbershoot

Illustration Friday prompt: prehistoric 
(I remember having one of these embedded in a rock when I was little - thought it was the coolest treasure - amazing to think you can touch the imprint of something from 500 million years ago!)
a one-line pen & ink drawing w/Inktense pencils

As Trilly left his house that day
he took his brolly on his way
for he heard the news man say,
"Be prepared for rain today."

But the rain that fell on down
was not the kind you want around
and in an instant all were bound
to be fossils in the ground.

Trilobites!!! I remember seeing them at the Museum of Science when I was little and thinking they were the things they put in Chekov's ear in the Wrath of Khan! Love it!!
