There once was a dragon–so rarely beheld
Her golden scales exquisite and unparalleled
But, because the creature was unique and unmatched
She concealed her beauty behind a dull mask
And was careful to act as the other girls did
Ensuring her nature was carefully hid.
There once was a dragon–strong and quite fierce
With talons and teeth that, could anything, pierce
But, the creature had heard he was the last of his kind
No others around that were left to find
So he tucked himself within a shell
To ensure his singularity, no other, would tell.
There once was a day where two dragons met
You’d think their souls would be matched by kismet
But the truth of their nature was shielded and covered
No eye could decipher what was buried under.
Two dragons did meet with their masks set firm
But they walked right past, their love unreturned.
