Silly Dragon (made for the Harnkegger Games' poetry competition, and it actually won the silvery prize) Once there was a land far from here And there, many dragons dwelt They spat fire and ruled the skies Hoarded treasures and enjoyed their lives One dragon was a special one He disliked fire and having coin He sniffed blooms and tended plants He liked to get dirt on his hands The other dragons kept mocking him They thought real dragons should be grim "Real dragons don't care for gardening" "They should be mean and frightening!" The mocking made that dragon sad One day, he took his garden hat He walked straight down into a pond Where he could tend weeds with love One day, the dragons had a silly fight About a treasure, there's no doubt The fight turned the world into a fiery pit And all the dragons went extinct Except for one... The silly dragon wondered what was going on So it crept out from his peaceful pond To see how the world had burnt to ashes The air was heavy with all the sadness But the silly dragon didn't get upset It smiled and into the pond it went It drank all the water it could take And then it came up with haste It rose up and flew quite high And poured water down from the sky It spread seeds on the ground so bare And they grew into fields so fair The dragon planted blooms and greens Turnips, corn and apple trees There was no place left bare nor plain The world became alive again. Where is that silly dragon now? Into the pond he did go There he blows some water bubbles And enjoys eating tasty mussels To him, it never mattered really That he was born so silly.
