Dragon Down

The fearsome fire of taunting terror
roaming the face of the earth
seeking someone to devour
to and fro heart to hearth

Roar and fluff of pride and stuff 
of bluster full with wind
a toothless scowl and harmless growl
that wields a Cheshire grin

You've been undone from tip to tail
full desecration nail to scale 
no more to harm or fool to charm
by hollow sore or grim travail

The narrow stake has power take 
all glory from your light
withered gone plunged fire headlong
into the Lake stoked white
