Knight in Shining Armour
A dragon was on a firey rampage underneath her heaving blood red scales.
She was ready to burst
Ready to mercilessly render all who came near her burnt to a crisp
For a strange flame raged in her fire-breathing lungs
For an odd worry burdened her rugged wings.
Then came forth a knight in shining armour
Gallant and handsome, full of valor
Ready to face adversity with a smile
And the dragon was about to burn him down
'Halt!' he cried, 'harken unto me, o graceful dragon.'
And then he blanketed her with an array of sweet words and jests
Just to merely pacify the fire
And to soothe her old scars and bruises
But he had extinguished that flame!
All of a sudden,
Her rugged wings disappeared
Her form changed
And before the gallant warrior was a beautiful young lady with flowing hair
Lying down on the ground.
Gently picking her up, he recognized her.
'Why, you're the princess I've come to save!' he exclaimed, 'Pray, tell me who that dragon was,'
'It was me, that dragon was me,' she said, 'you have saved me from myself, oh my knight in shining armour!'
