Legend of the Dragon Breath – part 4
The mortal realm was in turmoil
at least throughout the east,
Even the Gods of Olympus
were mystified by the beast.
For this Wyrm that breath flame
this dragon that breath fire,
Is definitely an immortal
a descendant of Gaia at the least.
News of ill omen
travelled across south,
Strange tidings being whispered
by many a mouth.
Trade route all halted
bad fortunes abound,
And everywhere Hermes travelled
same rumors were worsening to a clout.
But neither the line of Cronos
the father of the Gods,
Nor even their grandfather Uranus
seems all at odds.
For claiming such a kinship
is like claiming a bad pip,
A rotten seed of Chaos
definitely not worth the trip.
The voices of the multitude
cried out in pain and in prayer,
The once proud King himself
tore more than a few strands of hair.
Offerings they now did daily
on these newly erected cairns,
Looking more and more dreary
like overused coffin biers.
Yet the almighty Zeus
seemed uninterested in their affairs,
Perhaps too small a threat
for Him to get down on his chair.
Or maybe a piece of divine punishment
for the mortals in this land,
Men who cried out to the Gods
only when their luck changes hand.
The King in his melancholy
sought distraction from a fool,
Feeling so worn and defeated
by the tragedy of his current rule.
Summoning his notorious bard
in the mood for a sad song,
Sensing the Kings depression
the minstrel played along.
“The dragon is a tyrant
fed only by its greed,
Lust so he desired our treasures
which we all sorely need.”
“Listen to this songster
if my lord only oblige.
I know of a new solution
that will keep the dragon aside.”
“Tell me dear master fool
for your King is short of counsel,
My pride as Monarch is broken
in misery our kingdom dwell.
A year of restless discomfort
my wisdom fled my bravery fell,
Perhaps your ramblings of madness
will stop this tormenting hell.”
