The winged worm rose out of the ground,
Shooting fire all round.
Cutting down the castle bridge,
Crushing the battlements with a squidge.
Blasting palm trees down in fire,
The castle soldiers began to tire.
Over a turret flashed something black,
Shining in the night-time dark.
A javelin struck the dragon to the ground,
The scaly creature squirmed round and round.
