Legend of the Dragon Breath - part 7
“My King, my Lord
dear Majesty of Lasia,
Lose hope must you not
for I have yet another bright idea!
Being your humble servant
I live but only to serve,
My words may carry wisdom
but lacks power as you can observe.”
“The latest plan did fail then
yet the war is not at a lost,
The courier thus mentioned silence
after the last breath of exhaust.
Perhaps the Dragon is now sated
from such a fine roast of a feast,
The fiery breath must be caused then
by that Shepherds obvious theft.”
“The flock was indeed many
a mighty volume it was deemed,
Giving dessert while it is weary
a decidedly wise tactical scheme.
The operation might be delicate
as it requires at least,
An offering carried by a noble virgin
preferably a Priestess of the East.”
“Grant me power to command dear Lord
or at least put me in charge,
I was not always just a minstrel
I even have claims to a noble birth.
My father was thus a renowned hunter
he taught me how to bait,
My mothers line was from a Margravine
protectorates of your borderline turf.”
“Despite my humble image
I feel the need to rise,
Right this wrong that plague you Majesty
I promise you the turds demise.
Grant this Bard some voice of authority
to overseer this burdensome task,
Perhaps a rank of Baron
or a Vizcount if I could ask.”
“For I will surely put this beast off guard
and slay this Dragon in its sleep,
Prevent it from ever breathing
those awful fumes of the deep.
Had I this little power
I'll thus convince a Priestess and more,
Instructions and preparations
access to potions of rare Turkestan mint.”
The King of Lasia upon hearing
readily agreed with his advising Bard,
Dismissing the latest failures
like a rotten deal at the cards.
The King realized his folly
but too late the poison was fed,
His Songsters latest suggestion
human sacrifices is what he said.
An offering made by a Priestess
interesting choice perhaps,
Such tactic might not prove fruitless
but still an ill bred plan for mishaps.
Yet the King really now has lost it
wits snapped finally at last,
If the Gods all but deserted
Then this trial might actually be just.
Turkestan mint is a herbal plant with intoxicating properties, proven sedative and has aromatic fragrance but very bitter.
