The Mighty Dragon

The mighty Dragon sat in his lair
Pondering on his throne-like chair
Waiting for the Knight's arrival
As it was foretold in the Dragon's Bible.

One stormy night the Knight finally came.
He was wearing the same
Armour that in the Book glowed and blazed,
And he thrust and stabbed and slashed.

The Dragon retaliated by breathing fire,
the Knight's armour deteriorated, his quest became dire;
The Dragon clawed and crunched and roared,
The Knight parried, overwhelmed and distraught.

The battle was over and the Dragon won;
The Knight was demolished, his destruction done.
Everyone was glad but at what cost?
What if the Dragon was evil and humanity was lost?...
