Failed Dragon

The dragon has failed
She's lost her scales 

One by one by one 

Years past princes had come - 
aye many did 
But few survived her flames 
and so many fled

One by one by one 

She sits in her domain now
Saddened every day
Blinded by her own fumes
Her treasures stolen away

One by one by one

    Wow, this without a doubt has to be one of the best poems of all time that I've read here. A perfect message witten in a unique way that captures my attention and now it sticks in my head. Bravo! Absolutely brilliant. I want to keep praising this I love it so much, rarely does a piece enthrall me such as this. I'm going to read it to my wife right now.

    Humorous Talena! I like how you split your write up via "One by one by one" really cool! Nice little tale of dragons and princes, and we don't find how she has failed until the end! Awesome poem! Great Work!
