Tea From a Dragon

A dragon I once saw

With scales of gold and green

He smiled down upon me

The most gorgeous ever seen

--------------------------------

His wings spanned over mountains

His tail crossed every river

The fire blowing from his mouth

Made my body shiver

---------------------------------

He took me to his dragon cave

And offered me some tea

I scanned the place from wall to wall

In case I had to flee

---------------------------------

The cakes were made of soldiers' bones

The milk from cows devoured

I think every knight who came here

Soon became a coward

----------------------------------

When we were finished he said goodbye

As politely as could be

I waved farewell and headed home

So glad he hadn't eaten me.
