With eyes fixed in gallant stare;
My presence with sword I announce.
Dragon's breath flickers a deadly glare;
The earth rumbles 'neath its sudden pounce.
Flame meets shield, iron glows red;
The air is heavy with sulfurous heat.
To long has the beast filled hearts with dread;
For my honor the serpent must fall in defeat.
A razor edge finds flesh then bone;
From a headless body fire and blood rains.
No more this demon through our land will roam;
With dragon's blood may my blade always be stained.
As I step from dark lair to morning light;
The sun is but a temporary friend.
Somewhere another vile creature takes flight;
With last dragon's breath, or mine, the quest will end.
