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.
