The Wonder Of It All
On one bright and sunny morning, verses a dark and stormy night, of course!
Dragon stood at ‘The Dragon and Sheriff Statue’, in the Mayhem Falls Park.
Dragon pondered, should he put a mustache on the Sheriff of Crazyland’s part?
Would he get caught as he usually did? Should he try to do it any way?
Temptations! Temptations! Life can be hard, where temptations abound!
At just that moment, one of the three Billy Goats Gruff came out of Hiding.
He put his head down, aimed, and charged at this beautiful ladies derriere!
What? Honestly…You know I can’t say butt… So let’s just leave it at that.
Dragon was immediately in hero mode, running to save said Damsel in distress.
Except that she didn’t need saving. I can honestly say! Thank you very much!
The lady threw Ol’ Billy over her head, then laid him gently upon the ground.
Then thinking Dragon his accomplice… She also took our poor Dragon down.
Now, it’s hard to be a hero, as someone sits upon you, with you upon the ground.
The Sheriff of Crazyland had seen it all from afar, as he sauntered onto the scene.
Oh My! Oh My! You might say, she was the prettiest gal… He had ever seen!
It was up to the sheriff to save Dragon. Who was embarrassingly letting off steam!
Our Sheriff was so beguiled by her beauty; he leaned on Dragon, his heart agleam.
It was now the Sheriff’s turn for temptations as he put a mustache on our little guy.
Ol’ Billy slipped from her hands and began to go-at away, Baa-ing. What can I say?
The sassy lady introduced herself as Wonder Woman, as she lassoed that Ol’ Goat.
And MAN! Those legs of hers had the Sheriff seeing stars! Indeed she was a Star!
So he offered her lunch and an ice cream treat, at the ice cream parlor… so sweet.
With Billy the goat in his paddy wagon, Dragon was let loose to go on his way…
But instead, he too, joined them at the Parlor, for an ice cream Sundae supreme.
The Sheriff was far mesmerized by Wonder Woman, she was just, so very Keene.
The three chatted on how to save the day, before Wonder Woman went on her way.
It had been the best day ever, as everyone got pictures of her, naturally, of course.
For you see, the paparazzi, fine consignors of… news… had hovered, so very close.
The Sheriff of Crazyland finally had a Christmas wish to come true… It’s true!
He’d got a date with a dream… and not IN a dream… as she told him that…
She’d be coming back thru town, to share another ice cream…with him… soon.
Dragon…. still so captivated… thought that she meant him, naturally, of course.
And he had forgot that… he was now sporting that drawn on… curly mustache.
Yes, folks… It was The Best-est News Day Ever.
To our Best-est Friend Steve and his McDonalds’ Gang
