Dragons Den

I went to the Dragons to try and make a deal.
I didn't consider, how scared I would feel.

On the tables beside them, were piles of cash.
I became so nervous, I broke out in a rash.

Tongue tied I fumble, my ideas unclear.
How in the world, did I ever end up here.

Jim from Boston Pizza, a former RCMP
Said if he had his cuffs, he would arrest me

Then Mr Wonderful, not such a friendly guy
Said my idea was so bad, it made him want to cry

Arlene was a little nicer, yet still said that she was out
My confidence was shot, I felt like such a lout

Robert Herjavic said " don't quit your day job".
I could take no more, I started to sob!

If you have an idea, be sure you prepare
As for me happy, to get away from there


Dragons Den is a Canadian show where entrepreneurs
present ideas to Millionaires in hopes they will invest
in their business or idea. This is thankfully not a real
life experience.

    Thanks Olive, very nice to make your aquaintance. I do hope you read some of my other work, this one is to amuse but lacks emotional significance.

    This was an enjoyable read. Though, admittedly, the title of this piece had me expecting something else. Anything with the mention of "Dragon", I'm there. :) Very, very well done!

    Thanks Eillen, magic tears have been known to snuff out Dragon flames.
