Finding Cloud Nine
One of our friends, becoming successful, was successful again.
He exclaimed to the World: “I am on CLOUD NINE, my friends!”
In fact: He said it again and again, as we helped celebrate, his win!
It was GREAT! Tho actually, hard work had changed, what had been.
But Dragon was to young to know that, or what it REALLY did mean.
That it was the result of very hard work, building upon so many things.
It had been built, from the steady bringing to life, a lifetime, of dreams.
Indeed, all Dragon heard, of all said, was what that cloud, could bring.
Yep! Only that wonderful and illustrious Cloud Nine, from over head.
Dragon wanted to find it TOOT SWEET! But the clouds had all fled!
What would he do? We told him to Google it with Grandpa Troll.
Instead he found Love Potion #9, but that is for another poetry stroll.
Dragon decided to go aloft fast, as clouds were forming, finally, at last!
Counting clouds he went into the air, but cloud #9 was over, the airport!
OH YES! And inside Cloud #9 he hit a plane. Yes, Dragon had made…
Himself into an interesting plane hood ornament! You might say.
PRICELESS! Dragon was now bugging up, the windshield of a plane!
And guess what? It was a sightseeing plane made, for all, to see Dragon!
Yes, a plane full of tourists filmed it all, including Dragons’ caboose!
Which wasn’t small and hanging past the windows with viewing for all.
The name on the plane was, surprisingly enough, “Cloud Nine Tours”.
I think THAT said it all! Yes, our Friend owned it! Now you understand.
He planned for all, to view and film Dragons blunders from, safely aloft.
I hear, together, they were able to make a disaster movie, par excellent!
WAY BETTER than all the Sharknados’, and it will be at theaters soon!
Oh! And don’t be surprised, when I say: It was again a great News Day.
Even this time, from high up in the skies, and we laughed, until we cried!
Even Dragon, who became a Hero, as he brought the plane safely down!
What! And if, you thought he could ONLY be, a crazy, young clown…
I’ll tell you: A Greater and more Interesting HERO, will never be found!
