My dragon disappeared last month

    And I’ve searched everywhere.

I asked a pig, I asked a mouse,

    And then a grizzly bear.


But:  Nobody had seen him.


It made the headlines of the news.

    “A dragon’s running free.”

My neighbour thought he heard a roar

    From high up in his tree.


But: It was only somebody flushing the loo. (toilet)


A silly boy rang in and said:

    “I think he’s in our school,”

But that was just a joke of course.

    He thought it was quite cool.


But: We didn’t think  he was funny -  just VERY silly.


“Now tell us,” said a nice policeman:

     “What is your dragon like?

Perhaps someone has spotted him

    And I’ll go there on my bike.”


But:  Nobody had spotted him, of course.


He’s wary, scary, blows out  flames;

     He’s eyes of shining green.

He’s great big teeth and flaming breath -

    The fiercest thing I’ve seen.


But:  He’s actually WORSE than this.


He’s giant scales upon his back

    And a tail that’s wavy too.

He eats large rats and even cats

    And especially folks like you.


But:  Don’t tell your friends this!


So should you see him one fine day,

     Please send him home to me,

For dragons shouldn’t wander loose,

     I’m sure you will agree.


WARY =Not trusting others; cautious; suspicious
