A few of the remnants

A few of the remnants

Madagascar once lay close
By India to its west,
Islands mark the continent
Where dinosaurs did rest.

Volcanic islands that we see,
Laccadive and Cargados,
Etch the backbone of lost land
With Tromelin and Chagos.

This piece of ancient continent
Was stretched by plate tectonics,
Became an ocean scattered with
Remnants for mnemonics.
