Dragons, Dragonflies, and Huffle-winks
A surprise move by the Nordic King
He orders his men to kill Huffle-Winks
They are big-headed junks hollering mouthfuls
Blood they need of Princess Umberta.
'Take them into confidence' the dragons
They are so poor, shorn of fire-power
And master of Huffle-winks takes note of
The dragonflies are so busy with lillipooks.
In predawn strike, Huffle-Winks bleed
Dragons' mightiest scales lose glitter
Legends fall into pieces,vulnerable stories
Litter the pavement to be walked over.
Now, she tramples the path out in garden
In regular errands to Umberta's studio
A baby dragon little feet wonder chum
The princess is happy with the kingdom.
