Dragons Speak

by Talitha Ruatha

Age Group: Adult

Dragons speak
and dragons tell
of life with humans
and getting on very well.

They tell the stories -
like when Tom Miller got mad
at Brian the Baker
for being a cad…

Or life in the forests
and mountains galore
like when Mistress Vixen
was once called a whore!

Ah! Stories of old!
And those not yet seen!
Stories to live by,
and stories of dreams.

Who knew what madness
would be seen when
those Humans got wise
and invented the pen?

Stories and stories
grew bolder each day -
of how dragons would devour
whatever they may.

So dragons be dragons,
they took it so far..
‘til one day written madness
found death’s open door!

The dragons were dying,
extinction upon their race -
The human beings were winning
with quill & ink upon their face.

Those nasty humans!
They wrote with such glee!
Finding dragon death so fun,
that one would have to pay a fee!

Until one day,
Grand Dragon appeared,
Called council to those left;
Gave the judgment as feared:

"We’ll fight now, my friends,
Fight unto true death!
To hell with those humans!
We’ll send ‘em there with our breath!"

And so it all started,
the fighting so fierce!
Death ruled both sides -
so deadly…it brought tears!

And then one night,
when darkness reigned supreme..
Golden flying lights
o’er the countryside were seen…

Elven they came,
Riding white steeds..
Bearing magic cups a-plenty
to those dying or in need…

“Hush..” said those fae folk
“No more of this madness…
you’re killing each other
and the Lady cries in sadness”

“Take away those swords
and the breath that kills…
Live lives separate from each other
Those here and in the hills”

“The Lady cries deeply
her tears fall like rain,
which of thee has the courage
to stop this hurting pain?”

A human woman stepped forward,
One dragon male, too...
A bond made in the darkness
of which there is no clue….

Yet, dragon blood stopped pouring;
and the dragons began to thrive.
Death’s door had been left ajar
and humans were glad to be alive.

So what is the moral of this story?
Come closer! I’ll give you the head’s up..
Humans! Never argue with a dragon
For you are crunchy and good with ketchup!
