Over the hills and far away,
Where knights come to save the day,
An old woman,
she used to preach,
“Raise your steel!
Our walls will be breached!”
No-one believed her,
‘Til upon came the King.
“What will attack us?
What should we bring?”
She told him she was a-walk in the woods,
Along came a dragon! How tall he stood!
His voice was deep, enchanting and true,
His fur a soft tint of ocean blue,
“Bring me a maiden, who’s soul I will take,
but betray me beware, your walls shall break…”
The king was afraid, ’cause only he knew,
A dragon who’s fur a soft tint of blue…
That dragon’s request had been laid to rest,
For he dare not put his patience to test.
The king did not deny, but he did not bring,
For he knew he had ’til Spring.
But when winter come, the King was in trouble
Soon his kingdom would be smashed to rubble
He had not given the Dragon his maiden
With fear and stress his heart was laden
He cried to the skies
Wished the dragon no might
But the skies struck back with lack of care
And the king’s heart had stopped with a mighty flair
Remorse struck, the peasants weeping and bawling
When upon came the dragon, smashing and clawing
As the peasants cried out with fear
“Who will save us? The end is near!”
An old woman stood up with her old, creaky legs
She chanted some words and the dragon begged
Her to stop her sentence, forgive and forget
“I’ll disappear and thus cease all this fret!”
She quieted down and responded in low
Be gone from this world, or go drown in the moat!
The dragon grinned wickedly, and with all his power
He lashed and bit and caused the town to cower
The woman started back up, and with it did his pleas
And as the chant finished he begun to freeze
The dragon roared and twisted and fell
He had fallen under an old witch’s spell
The kingdom rejoiced in apparent glee
She had victored over the terrible monstrosity
They all thought she’d die, but she was old and wise
and simply told them, “None shall escape their demise”
They looked back at their terrible queen
And threw her from tower, tore down the Green
capes, that draped the walls of castle
New capes were put up and with little hassle
The old woman, despite tradition and rules and other silly things
Became the queen and the Kingdom soared with her wings
And through all the years she ruled
She never became stuck up or cruel
And thus our story comes to an end
With some last parting words;
Beware of dragons, my friend!
