Dracones – by Laura Crean

Dracones

 

Dracones

 

In mystery and myth he came,

devoured many with his flame,

‘Ancient beast of scale and wing’

The bard of old is apt to sing

But whoever lived to tell?

Who saw the evidence of his shell?

Who fought in battle his scaly hide?

Who lived one more day and did confide

what came to pass with old Dracones?

Is it he who still persists

in hiding out in night-time mists

only daring show his face

when with his wings he doth embrace?

And in his old reptilian ways

does he still abduct for days

the lonely travellers on weary path

who dare whisper his name on the back of a laugh?

For he is master of the dream,

he can hide anywhere it seems,

he tricks you with his stealing time

and only his piercing eyes remind,

of his ancient and accursed plan

to humiliate and embarrass Man.

So be aware and keep your wits

or he will shred your soul to bits!
