The Manner of Dragons
This was a trickier proposition than it appeared, as there was nowhere I could dissappear to to write it, and a party with free food and booze does not propitiate the muse!
So this was written the morning after.
The Manner of Dragons.
We know the Dragon's manner
From the songs the Bards have sung.
We know it breathes a breath of flame
From a mouth with a double tongue,
But the Bards don't sing the half of it,
And at the truth they baulk,
For the Dragon hasn't any teeth,
But, by God, can it talk!
