Heroes
Kelly Dopp

In kingdom lost to myth and time
A dragon raged in blood-red scale.
The warning bells on high did chime.
The citizens did naught but wail.

In armor rose a shining knight,
A steed of grey beneath his seat.
Behind steel visor prince did fight
To save his kingdom from defeat.

Called to aid, white dragon flew
To serve the prince but failed, forsooth.
By accident the white one slew
The prince by claw, the red by tooth.

Though beast was there to save the day

The citizens did drive him away.
