A Knight in a Skirt meets Dragon Fishbreath

This was another one of those drawings I found while sorting my tax and medical aid documents.    A knight in a skirt, and a friendly dragon with fishy breath.

    I love this drawing!
    I write poetry and your drawing inspired me to write the following poem. Let me know what you think.

    “I Think, Therefore … What?”

    The dragon roared as he advanced upon the lovely lass.
    The young knight swung his silver sword, but fell upon his a$$.

    The maiden thinks, “So THIS is all my father thinks of me?
    He sends a useless lad to where a virile knight SHOULD be!”

    The youth now stands with quaking knees and turns to face the beast.
    He thinks, “If I can’t kill this wyrm, then soon I’ll be deceased!”

    Meanwhile, the dragon’s thinking, too … “Another tasty treat?
    This kingdom truly honors me by sending so much meat!”

    The damsel rolls her eyes and thinks, “This isn’t looking good.
    Can that boy kill a dragon? I sincerely doubt he could!”

    The lad looks over at the maid and thinks, “Why am I here?
    My wretched father sent me; I would NEVER volunteer!”

    The dragon looks down at the boy; the boy’s eyes open wide!
    His cheeks are flushed and glowing; he feels quivery inside.

    The maid can feel the tension in the gaze between the two.
    She looks at both the beast and boy and suddenly she knew!

    The young man’s eyes are locked upon the one he now adores.
    The young maid frees herself and crawls away upon all fours.

    As she climbs down the mountain, she can hear them up above;
    “My scaly stud!” – “My little man!” – “You are the one I LOVE!”
