the little dragon of the kingdom
didn't breathe fire.
he ate corn chips
and nachos
and gargled with
soda pop.
he lounged
on a tree branch
hidden among the leaves
that were green as he was.
his big sister
floated down from the skies
her scales like giant sequins
of shining purple.
she told him
'you'll be bigger than me
but not yet.
Hiding in the tree
is good for now.
Just look and listen
and rumble from above.
You'll stay safe
and learn a lot!'
she spun back into the sky
and he knew there and then
it was time -
oh, yes! oh, woe! -
it was time to roar
and leave his hiding place
in the tree.
