When the colossal dinosaur traversed through the marshy soil; there occurred a
deafening roar; the entire family of jungle beasts saluted him,
However he left behind a trail of triangular footprints; bohemian and gigantic; that made onlookers uneasy; by merely glimpsing the same.

When the hunch backed camel ambled languidly through the desert; I paid him
flowing tributes of adulation; for unceasingly bearing the tyranny of scorching heat,
However he left behind a semicircular array of footprints; which appeared
pretty insipid and nonchalant.

When the stray dog ran across the wet road; he was a sight to stare; with his
furry coat now camouflaged in muddy water,
However he left behind a battalion of messy footprints; which caused disdainful blemishes on the surface.

When the handsome horse galloped across the racetrack; he looked majestic and
grandiloquent; panting with spurts of exuberant energy,
However he left behind an incongruous design of footprints which were crudely
square in shape; punctuating cavities in the hard ground.

When the olive green and serrated skinned crocodile slithered through the
river banks; he looked domineering and awe inspiring,
However he left behind an armory of deadly footprints; which caused sumptuous
food in the belly of innocuous trespassers to violently churn.

When the protuberant bellied ducks paraded through clayey farm mud; they
appeared a sight to feast on; with their yellow beaks dazzling brilliantly in
the Sun,
However they left behind a jugglery of diamond shaped footprints; which
perpetuated incorrigible stains in the spotless kitchen.

When the black striped panther aimlessly loitered through the tropical grass; he looked like a royal prince; embodied with the whitest of silken whisker,
However he left behind a fleet of monstrously incoherent footprints; which
scrupulously lead the hunter to his den.
When the nefarious robber stealthily crept across the soil; he left me dumbfounded; clad in the blackest of attire; with a snake hood camouflaging his face,
However he left behind a volley of deplorable footprints; which helped the police to trace and apprehend him.

And when she walked on the cold floor with bare feet; it shivered as if
caressed by a celestial fairy; having just descended from the realms of heaven,
Also the footprints that she left behind were perfectly synchronized; were the
most mesmerizing that I had ever sighted on the trajectory of this earth.
