MAKING MYTHS [4] DRAGON
It all started at the edge of earth, where man and beasts lived together, each keeping to their own kind, a very long time ago. When one day: in sauntered Dragon, strutting his scales and fire belly.

Then up comes The Steal-er who shouts, looking him up. "Who do you think you are? stalking through my town, proud, dragon-proud" Dragon retorts: looking him down. "Where? are, my treasures, you thief! you scalywag! Where are my gold, my diamonds, my rubies and sapphires? You take my things without a care" "Shut your mouth! You fire-spewing-reptilian-whatever." Shouted The Steal-er.

And so, the fire dragon inhaled, keeping his fire. He stood there, at the edge of the earth just smirking. Earth started getting warmer and warmer and warmer. (He is still standing there, smirking) Today, folks all over the globe, are everyday, talking about global warming.

  1. I sure hope the Steal-er gives the treasure back, if not the earth is going to fry.

    This is really clever, Gillena. It makes me think of the Doctor Who episode in which the moon was an enormous egg that hatched something that looked a lot like a dragon. When the hatching happened, things got really wild on the earth.

    I would be almost nice if climate change was a dragon we could appease, or something we could undo all the way...

  6. Oh if only there was a steal-er we could fight against to stop climate change. Unfortunately, combating climate change is more like fighting a hydra, with so many heads to contend with, each more ravenous than the last.
