Legend of the Dragon Breath – part 2
The dragon saw a castle
a fortress ruled by a king,
Atop a fair sized plateau
surrounded by forest greens.
The dragon slithered along courtyards
flattened bales of hay.
Gobbled a few horses
along with stable boys and peasant maids.
Every human fled the courtroom
except for king and royal guards,
The king ordered the evacuation
yet curiosity led him to stay inside,
For never in his years of power
nor ever in the history it seems,
That there was a mention of a dragon
who lived around the range.
The king summoned his courage
perhaps emboldened by the gods,
He threw his most loudest greetings
with a stringent discipline of a king.
But alas the dragon merely snorted
cold derision in its eyes,
The dragon would have breathe on them
had it cared less otherwise.
So entranced was it by the courts design
marbled dais and gilded walls all so fine.
It held its thought of slaughter
went on cunning negotiating patterns,
“Such beauty is your throne my lord
I like to dine and den,
I would like to roost for a while
I would like to make it my pen.”
The king wanted his castle
and all the riches inside,
No way can he share this throne
specially to a dragon born,
The king now mad fury and fright
demanded what was his by right,
Threw a tantrum of historic claims
five generations and a hundred years of reign.
The dragon plucked at the kings golden crown
which almost severed the ruler neck down,
Had not his majesty ducked in time
falling unceremoniously towards the ground.
The dragon eventually sent them running
amusement in his eyes,
Claws chased through armours playfully
snuffling their wanton cries.
The king lost half his entourage
barely escaped himself they said,
In hatred he summoned his council then
intent on killing the turd,
The king raised up an army
in hopes that the dragon will abate.
He even spent his fortune
which drove him to a financial straits.
At first the army charged head on
the dragon knew that was unwise,
The dragons scales are not merely decor
they are there to withstand the fire.
For a dragons sole greatest weapon
is the fiery flaming jets.
A fire that melts everything it touches
now known as the dreaded dragons breath.
