The Dragon in the Castle

There’s a dragon in the castle and it’s storming up a fright.
It is my duty to defeat it, because I am a knight.
As its body looms above me and I see it’s slashing tail,
I do believe that it has seen me- I quiver in my mail.
For there’s a dragon in the castle, and it doesn’t look alright.

I ponder how to bring it down- for it I must defeat.
Perhaps I could deceive it here, but I must be discreet.
As the dragon passes by me on its way to see the king,
An idea pops into my head- this won’t hurt a thing.
For there’s a dragon in the castle, and this task I must complete.

As the dragon comes up to me and I see a frightful sight,
I realize as it starts laughing, its not here to start a fight.
“Do not fear me” it said slowly, “I’m really not that dreadful.”
For there’s a dragon in the castle, and it’s simply a delight.
