Dragon News Flash

News Flash! Dragons Back! He’s the News Hog of the Day. No one can print, without him, becoming entangled in some way. He heard that there’s a new newspaper lurking, around the bend. He wants to know… if he can pose as the new Super Hero, therein? He’s already has a cape, and cell phone, so those in trouble, can call. But beware, of his landings, he’s known to knock things down, even walls. Still he gives a striking pose for the paparazzi, who always following him. He’s been made a junior fireman, because fire simply, doesn’t bother him. He saved a cat form Old Lady Moores’ burning barn, just the other day. Don’t believe the rumor, it started from a stray spark, one of his, they say. Remember don’t say that, it makes our little Dragon cry…it was the wind! Our Carpenter Trolls are building a new one; to replace the one, he did singe! Acorn Falls is our town; Dragon seems to have put it on the map, to stay. Folks in town are wanting a name change, to Dragon’s Mayhem Falls, today! If you want an exciting vacation, let me know, I’ll tell you where, it’s at! Here are the numbers to call, to contact us, and we even rent hard hats. The carpenter Troll’s are 1-800-555- Repair & Fix The town number has become 1-800-555- Mayhem Falls My number for a joyous write is 1-800-555- let it rip To Rent a Super Hero Dragon is 1-800-555-Dragon Here Just remember that if you call Dragon, Please keep the other numbers on hand.

Hello Carol, I am not going to visit that town specially since my asbestos suit is now un-safe perhaps as un-safe as that dragon..?

I could've used a super hero dragon a couple of years back when the furnace went out. I had no idea that you offered those services; I'll post the numbers on the fridge for future reference. Great! Great! Fabulous!

Funny but makes a point. I like the idea of Poetry as instructions from a manual on how to live your life through the insights of others. And the way you make the dragon real in terms of our shared experience. A form of Speculative Realism, I believe. That's my new favorite literary buzz term.

:D I am still laughing, Carol. It seems this fire-breathing dragon could make a free barbecue out of anyone's house. Very witty write, dear. You woke me up from all the serious poems I've been reading today. THANK YOU! Love, Carolyn
