There’s a knight at night upon a bridge
Below sleeps the dreaded dragon.
The knight is on a mission
Being valiant is his goal
To rescue some maiden
To set the world aright.
The dragon will prove his nemesis
It will thwart his every move
Nothing will come easy
It’s the path he has chosen.
As it’s the plight of the dragon
To be life’s obstacle
Growling and roaring;
Showing him the error of his ways.
In the end, the dragon loses,
At least it seems the way of it.
The knight is victorious
He has stories told about him
And becomes the source of legend.
Around him, he is cheered
And while the adulation happens
The dragon goes back to sleeping
His role in this complete.
