Dragon

You are noble and selfless

One of a kind

Your intentions pure

A clean soul and mind


Within your midst

I am enlightened

A clear We versus

The obviously Othered It comes from a good place

Your all words and acts

Even the ones that seem

Strangely suspect Draw me close, dearest

I’ll pick up your pieces

In every end where

Of course you’re faultless You’re always correct

Perfect clarity

I’ll just apologise

I’m mere calamity For the waning believer

You’re a mythic creature;

To the fearful fatigued

You come like sweet slumber But remember, my dear

Someday we’ll awake

To that sometimes a dragon

Is just a limbed snake
