Lighthearted Dragon

If I were a dragon, burning old bridges
with the fire that I breathe,
I would perform tricks, from way up high,
and eternally seethe,
lend a daring claw for those in need.

If I were a dragon, I wouldn't cause mayhem
upon the people.
Although I'm sure I'd be tempted for those
sovereigns high on their steeple,
not the matador, but the bull.

If I were a dragon, beautiful
and so meticulously preen,
the world would give me the dunce cap,
every crawling thing would be so mean,
provoking me to intervene.

If I were a dragon, burning old bridges
with the fire that I breathe,
I'd hide my great bulk in the darkest cave,
my claws would be always sheathed,
and forevermore I would grieve.



For the Mythological Animals Contest.

    Just as long as the love doesn't burn anyone's houses down... perhaps I won't get the arrows and the spears, LOL!

    Funny... I actually wrote this a couple years back. But when the competition came up I thought it was a great opportunity to bust it out... ha ha.
