The Nearsighted Dragon

To celebrate his new glasses,
home a nearsighted dragon, did fly.
the doctor had truly, helped his sight.
A party he’d throw, full of savories; 
on many delicacies, his friends would feed.
All night they’d party, till morning’s light.

His patio torches, he’d blow on to light;
water spots, he’d removed, from every glass. 
He decided a menu, for his friends, to feed.
Off to the grocery, with his bags, he did fly;
oh, how he did savor,
his brand new, eyesight.

Dragon, inswws, was a curious sight;
with bags full of food, he did alight.
Dragon truly savored,
his shiny new eyeglasses. 
but as turbulence hit, off they did fly; 
causing him to drop his many bags of feed.

With no food, for his friends, upon which, to feed; 
he dove, in an attempt, to restore his sight;
that nearsighted dragon in half-blind flight.
He looked drunk as the dickens, in broad daylight.
Though he recovered his glasses; 
his sight, again, to savor.

Now he could see, to recover, his savory
menu and headed home, for his friends, to feed.
First he tied on his glasses, 
as to not, lose his sight.
The coals on his grill, he simply blew, to light, 
as his guests all arrived, in true dragon flight.

Hungry dragons in flight,
arrived, dined and savored, 
the meal, he’d prepared by torch light.
On mushrooms and steak and potatoes they did feed;
oh, it was such a bright, festive sight
and they toasted him, with a great clinking of glasses.

Twenty dragons, still too full, to fly;
bedded down, in his cavern, by the morning light.

In dreams, they’d re-savor, 
the spread; what a sight!

Dragon’s friends, just as planned, he truly did feed;
all thanks to his shiny new eyeglasses.
