Dragons Side Kick

One day Dragon had an epiphany, Super Heroes NEVER work alone.
And there are just too many bad guys, for him to do it on his own.
True, he had never actually seen a bad guy, he now realized his OOPS!
Suddenly he realized, they only liked to fight those, Super Hero Groups!

After all, every movie he’d ever seen, drew the bad groups, to the good.
So he would need a sidekick, for his monumental hero, of DragonHood.  
Or possibly, maybe, an even score of Super Heroes, to draw to his side.
That’d assure his own movie, and comic book to be penned, he did decide.

So he put in the Local Tribune… Only Real Heroes need tryout, or apply!
When none came a running, he knew, a grudge match would call them nigh.
Again nothing happened, so what, OH WHAT, would he now decide, to do!
This would call for drastic measures! So he called Drago to come! It’s true!

Drago’d been getting BORED of late, at least that’s, what he’d heard him say!
Until John’s Drago got there, he called the Las Vegas Dragons to send his way:
Their MOST FURIOUS Dragon, to be his sidekick, fierce and full of display!
To ‘you know’ start to make things, begin to happen, in a really GREAT WAY!

Low and behold, they said they’d send him one, and to be ready, the next day!
Now this worried us, he hadn’t asked our permission first! So a big May Day!
But when I called them back… the story that I got… Would be a BIG surprise!
Yes Dragon stood there waiting as a great big Blue Dragon flew over the rise…

Dropped off a small fancy Red Dragon, then mightily rose up and flew away!
Yep, a GIRL Dragon, had come to play! Dragon was speechless, you might say!
But the Paparazzi weren’t, when Dragon coughed and laughed, and she literally!
Blew him away! Then she bit him in the neck, and tossed him high, immediately!

And he came down, landing without his dignity, and definitely now, IN LOVE! 
Not a bad two minutes work for a little bitty 3-year-old Dragoness with a shove! 
The paparazzi immediately reported as the News at Five, joined in: that she had! 
“Cleaned Dragon’s Clock! Dragoness has replaced Dragon… as the new BAD!”

Yep, we’d agreed to baby-sit while her Mom took a vacation, up to the North!
To check out John’s Drago! While Dragon’s new nemesis stayed with us! HAH!
Dragon saw the Noon News and fainted! THAT picture hit the later News at SIX! 
Now this should be fun, as I believe the old saying goes… ‘Ain’t Love a Bitch!’

And this little red bundle of trouble... arrived on Valentines' Day... It's True!

    Uh oh. We were on safari when the news hit—checking out the Snake river—Drago has a thing about snakes, you know. Dragon???In Love???Drago is beside himself (not too difficult since he's so big). Drago thinks he can fix this thing. I told him, "Be careful...LOVE is a lot bigger than you think! Now he's mad at cupid. You guys are absolutely correct, every super hero needs a sidekick. There is even a sone about sidekick heaven! (guess sidekicks don't last forever) Whew! Dragon in love!!!!!
