Dragon Finds A Patron Saint

Dragon was having a bad time; nothing was going right, one day.
First, he tried to cut the ribbon for the new library… in his name.
A breeze made him sneeze, sending sparks going, you know where.
It all went up, immediately, with lots of colored, flames in the air!

The fire department, knowing Dragon, was already there, for the show.
Dragon seeing flames, roared a terrible, NO! Melting their hose! Whoa!
But not to worry, sprinklers inside came on, putting out the fire’s glow.
A fire sale, for Smokey, moldy books, will be in the future, I’m assured.

Insurance saved the day, but our poor guy won’t be allowed, opening day.
Dragon will only be allowed to get books, on the Internet. But that’s OK!
He was a bit depressed; so we took him to the park, for it was on the way!
Once there, the Sheriff of CrazyLand, wanted him on a leash, without delay.

I told the Sheriff, if Dragon needed it, he could be the one to put it on him! 
Out of control, Dragon & the Sheriff, bounced and flew, hitting every limb. 
Until becaming entangled in the statue of Shakespeare, a tragic, fitting end.
As they went down the statue held, but the sheriff ended up tied to it, so grim.

Paparazzi swarmed for pictures, as Dragon’s nemesis was truly, fit to be tied.
Nothing was going well, as we were, off to christen a baby penguin, that cried.
While there, we heard a shout to get Dragon, a BIG St Jude medal, on the side. 
You know… the ONE… The Patron Saint, where all Hopeless Cases abide.

Then, a lit prayer candle fell, and rolled until catching a rug afire. Take care!
It really wasn’t Dragon’s fault… much… tho it was his tail, which put it there.
Then a miracle occurred. God had heard us, for Dragon finally, saved the day!
He extinguished it quickly, by spitting Holy Water on it, from the font, so fair.

Ewww. I say! Still in Defense of Dragon, every thing will eventually be OK.
Tho Dragon drool in the Holy Water made an ‘Out of Order’ sign, perfect today. 
Naturally, we immediately offered, to help clean the Holy water font out…
Fortunately, the Priest had a GREAT sense of humor, for he gave Dragon…

A blest St Jude metal, stating, ‘We could ALL use ONE, ‘With Dragon near!
PLUS a little electro shock therapy! Yep! No Doubt! And the baby penguin…
When baptized, he gave it a St. Jude metal, plus all others, that were about!

    I love it! Dragon only wanted to help out; I don't suppose that God would mind a little dragon drool. Great poem!

    Yay DRAGON! I hadda google St. Jude—"Patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes" plus, "is usually depicted with a flame around his head." No, I didn't make this up, it's in Wikipedia, and EVERYTHING there is true, no? This is a superb storytale from the master teller of tales. I got pretty giggly about the poor Sheriff. Thanks Carol and "hi Dragon" from Drago & me. Electro shock?? Where do I sign up?
