A Live and Dangerous Worm

In a cave 
   not too far 
from here 
       lives a ferocious dragon 
He sits on a great treasure 
     His eyes peer out 
at the world 
He is not young 
    But he is still fierce 
He protects his gold,silver, mithril, and gems 
from all strangers 
    Only a great knight of the realm 
could challenge him 
He is a wily worm 
   full of guile and spite 
All who speak with him 
fall under the dragon spell
    and he destoys them 
    A creature out of a child's nightmare 
    but real enough to chill the blood
and terrify those who who come across him

    Sharp and chrisp, this dragon seem a wily old fox, with the wisdom of an owl and the fire of hell.

    The tail of a dragon is often quite long... this one was delightful and didn't drag on... Terrry (nice poem & thanks for your kind comments)
