His First Dragon

The battleground
The battleground

He killed his first dragon today

As it came out of the earth

His lady stood back in dismay

He had his weapon at the ready

He struck until it curled in defeat

Hand ever steady

Not satisfied with this victory

On account of his lady’s persistentĀ fear

He searched further to kill any beasts near

With little battle to speak of, his strength unmatched

Again his enemy was smashed and smashed

I myself am

Thankful that I witnessed the screech of a big sister

such a war waged

The banging of a sand shovel

The bystander to see a boy shout, “No bug! No!”

The dirt battleground of a the backyard deck.

I got to be there and see

Because I am mommy

He killed a vicious rolly polly
