Magician's Pyre

December 19, 2011
Across from Merr was a land of sand and fire,
Only known as 'Magician's Pyre'.
It was featured in legend and lore,
but nobody knew what precisely for!
It had dragons, scamps, and plenty of sand!
But why it was so popular none could understand.

So one wizard decided to take it up as a quest!
And he went to Magician's Pyre, far, far to the west.
He was looking for a reason for all of its fame,
But to his dismay, everything was quite the same.
There were still trees and flowers, and bugs as well.
But there was nothing worth trying to take home and sell.
He trudged back onboard with a fortune spent,
And huffed and puffed, quite malcontent.

If he'd abandoned his dreams like most other folk,
Then he wouldn't be heading home totally broke.

It looked very simple in the beginning. I like the second last line, because of which, I like the ending! :D Great job!
