Chia Pet Dragon

Dragon was upset when the Sheriff of CrazyLand banned him from the park. A week from the park! And the new leash law Had To Go! He Squawked! He was bad, but to wear a leash… Upset him, sooo very much, you know! And he wasn’t done communing with nature, for answers he needed, sooo... Dragon snuck back into the park to add more, to his 2 year old reality. You see; he believed nature was wild and he was more like humanity. After all he’s not a pet, to lie around the house and wear a leash. Honestly! He learned, only pigeons are allowed on statues. He’d proceed, cautiously! So Camouflage became the new…name of the game, with his new mindset. So he got the Great idea; Dragon and his penguins would become Chia Pets! They poured the seeds all over themselves And NO! I’m not joking at that! The penguins made great Chia pet shrubs, until a dog decided to pee, splat! Trust me! The penguin got angry! And you don’t want to know the result! Dragon was more a Chia mountain, with a volcano blowing steam, engulfed. And you must know, Our Dragon can’t sit still a minute, on any given day. So when he saw the track, he became a mountain on the run, you might say. He left a trail of Chia, that even the crazy Sheriff, couldn’t possibly miss! The Sheriff knowing him well, decided: why chase him around like this? He got the fire department to meet him at the favored ice cream parlor shack. The Sheriff couldn’t keep a straight face, knowing just how he would attack! As Dragon came up puffing smoke, to get even, he would simply, holler fire! The firemen would put out Dragons’ fire! But, it never ends, as one conspires. As Dragon arrived, the sheriff gave a child, an ice cream, in the combat zone. Yep! His butt was facing Dragon as he bent over to hand the child the cone. An errant spark set HIS pants on fire… So instead of hosing Dragon down… The Sheriff, became the one who got hosed, by the firemen, from all around! ‘Really? Again?’ Was all he could scream! Tho the irony hadn’t been missed. The paparrizzi, standing nearby, had heard the plan… So pictures snapped! The newspaper captions the next day, read: ‘Sheriff brought low by GOD’… At nature’s request’ THE One and Only Burning Bush: lit the Sheriff on fire! Of course, the Sheriff ordered Dragon out of the park, again, as he screamed! But Dragon had his answer, GOD protects all and Nothing is what it seems! Gentle Dragon had survived an attack, from the wild Sheriff’s petty schemes. Who was hauled away in a padded wagon, for a small vacation, in-between. And the Newspaper papparizzi answered all Dragon’s questions, penned, In The End!
