The story of the
Dragons is full of much pain
At the blood stained hands

Of those who assume
That every unknown creature
Is evil itself.

The story of the
Dragons is one of murder
On such a vast scale

That neither side could
Ever be forgiven for
Their part in the hurt,

Except that they have
Already been made even
On account that both

The fierce knights and the
Monsters that they slayed did bring
Justice to them all,

Or at least justice
To each other, for theirs was
Not a happy tale.

Thanks, I wrote this piece a while age, but I still like it, if only for the dragone. I love dragons.

That was very cool!  I find it interesting how you told a story through you poetry. I really like this, because it has creative style.
