Poem – A Dragon and A Hero 

Note: This is a two-part acrostic poem.
Death and destruction descends like a storm – 

…creature of legend and mythical form. 

Reaping the lives of the women and men – 

…flames of the winged one scorching their skin. 

Agony, terror and hopelessness reigns – 

…children are crying with fear in their veins. 

Giant and scaly, with hell colored eyes, 

…beast of the ancient rains fire from the skies. 

Only the strongest survive the attack – 

…dreading the day that the creature comes back. 

No man or weapon has challenged the scourge. 

…hope that a hero will someday emerge. 
Hope brings a hero to vanquish a beast. 

Evil had driven its blood thirsty feast. 

Ruthless and epic – the battle campaign. 

Ode to the hero – the dragon is slain.
