As I lay there, asleep in my lovely, warm bed,
Madness was rising up in my head;
A dragon appeared out from the smoke,
And by his angry snarls, I knew this was no joke.
He had emerald-green scales and teeth like knives,
And you could tell by the blood on them, he had taken many lives.
He gave me a look, an evil stare,
I gulped with fear and trembled with scare.
He opened his mouth, eyes fixed on me,
I knew it would be the end with blood and gory;
As the dragon breathed out a great gust of fire,
A unicorn came to my desire.
It stabbed its horn into the beast's jaw
And it stumbled back and fell to the floor.
As it collapsed, I heard the thud of his head
And now I knew, the dragon was dead.
As the unicorn helped me from my petrified cries,
He let me fly on his back until the sun shall rise.
