Dragon 2

This week I have been a dragon, fire breathing.
My scales are supple,
my wings unfolded wipe men from horses.
I curve back my neck and roar smoke and cinders.

And in the story I am a hero,
I use my flames to fight good fights
and hold out in dragonly hope.
This week I have been a dragon
and that is how I am.

Dragon 1

This week I have been a dragon, fire breathing.
My scales are supple,
my wings unfolded wipe men from horses.
I curve back my neck and roar smoke and cinders.

But in the story I am not a hero,
though I wish my flames on no-one
and when I can do good.
This week I have been a dragon
but now I want to stop.

Unicorn to dragon rock 4

Unicorn to dragon rock 4.
[Ooh, say the crowd.]
Rock stands.
[Ahhh.]
Wanderer to dragon rock 3.
[A hissing of breath.]
Wanderer staff strikes dragon rock 2.
[Another intake of breath, quieter this time.]
Staff strikes dragon rock 1.
[Near silence, glances around the arena.]
Dragon rock 1 shifts.
[Silence.]
Dragon! Dragon enters the arena!
[Screams. Scrambling.]
Fire! Fire! Dragon fire!
[Screams. Silence.]
