It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him. J. R. R. Tolkien


How Dragon Acquired His Breath

A dragon licked the morning sun
To see if it was baked and done
He could not wait and took a bite
And found that it was spiced just right


Nibbles leading up to ten
Drank a lake...then ate....again!
Gobbled more and then he belched
As rumbles down below he felt!!


His stomach churned and he felt warm
His brow was moist, as boils formed
His throat was raw, his swallow sore
And yet he hungered...for some more!!!


Just another lick or two
He had his belly grew
He drank a pond...then nibbled more!
His eyelids closed, and then he snored


He dreampt he flew in darkest skies
Around in circles did he fly
He wished that he could find some light
And then he belched!!!



He shook his head as he woke up
Scratched his belly....then hiccuped!!!
He made a candle of a tree
SOME dreams came true you can see!!!


Hot stuff, huh???

Aw, this was just great. i love how you take an idea and roll it around, shape it, and come out with this hiliarious tale. I envy you this lighthearteness because my stuff is usually so dark. Even my lightheartedness is dark tinted.
