The Dragon who lived in the sewers-O

By Wyn Roth

Oh, I'll tell ye a tale that's not so old
A tale of the brave, the proud and the bold.
The tale of the dragon who eyes bright glowed,
The Dragon who lived in the sewers-O.
-
Yes, the Dragon who lived in the sewers-O.
Fol-de-rol-de rolo-o
-
Oh, once the zoo kept beasts that thought
With no concern for if they ought
Until the queen with sympathy
Did speak the words that set them free
Their keepers groaned and grumbled loud
But swore an oath they’d not be cowed
-
So the Dragon who lived in the sewers-O.
Fol-de-rol-de rolo-o
-
The unbowed keepers went neath ground
With dragon’s egg that they had found
They raised the young, til mother came
And put an end to their mad game
She raised her young, in filth and grime
And hunted in the woods, part-time
-
Did the Dragon who lived in the sewers-O.
Fol-de-rol-de rolo-o
-
Poor Wilric rode the dragon’s mouth,
Toward the city, flying south
With Roths and Jackson giving chase
Were hot of foot and red of face
As Claire sends warning to the gate
In hope the troopers won’t be late.
-
For the Dragon who lived in the sewers-O.
Fol-de-rol-de rolo-o
-
Thence deep beneath the city fair
Where few remember, fewer dare.
Did Kezra, Heath and Jackson face
The mother dragon in her base.
The Dragon’s winning, Kezra falls
But Gedd the Ranger’s standing tall
-
By the Dragon who lived in the sewers-O.
Fol-de-rol-de rolo-o
-
His sword at ready, primed to strike,
He saved the youngling from the spike.
Then speaking freely with the dam
Negotiated cunning plan.
The dragons leave the city free
Took wing to forests by the sea
-
Flew the Dragon who lived in the sewers-O.
Fol-de-rol-de rolo-o
-
Youngling did come of age that day
As he beheld the bloody fray.
He chose his name to honour Gedd
T'was Roth, he chose – that thoroughbred,
Gedd and his siblings did respond,
And with tattoos they sealed the bond.
-
T'was young Roth who lived in the sewers-O.
Fol-de-rol-de rolo-o
T'was the Dragon who lived in the sewers-O.
Fol-de-rol-de rolo-o!




Wyn and his siblings helped to defeat a dragon living in the sewers of the city of Valerez, this how the dragon got his name - and the Roths got their tattoos.
