Dolphin the Dragon
with apologies to Ogden Nash
Elsi drives in a long RV
With a moose on the side for all to see,
And a happy little beagle, either pullin’ or laggin’,
And a realio-trulio little pet dragon!
Dolphin the dragon has big, sharp teeth,
And fur all over him, and claws underneath,
Tail tip twitching a warning, you see,
And a realio-trulio little goatee!
Dolphin the dragon was quite astute,
With his tummy exposed, looking oh, so cute,
Innocent, cuddly, with lidded stare,
But if you succumbed, oh man, beware!
Pity the artist or harper whose hand
Must pet the soft tummy! They can’t understand
How the sweet little pussy with tail a-waggin’
Turned into a vicious and hand-eating dragon.
So, Elsi still drives her Meandering Moose,
And Sallie and Dolphin have established a truce:
We feed it … we walk it … and sometimes we pet it,
But the dragon’s still lurking, and don’t you forget it!
