A Dragon’s Disdain
By Donna M. Monnig
The dragon looked on with disdain
On his face he wore a massive scowl;
How could they expect him to remain,
To fight and travel with company so fowl?
The very thought of this alliance
Made the dragon want to growl!
It was with the most reluctant compliance
That he’d agreed to this at all,
Every moment he showed his defiance -
Half hoping the humans would all fall.
For, human was just a word for hindrance,
Calling themselves warriors took some gall!
Nothing so small could have endurance,
Of that, the dragon was most sure,
But short lived was his assurance -
For humans would outlast his mighty roar.

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt was to write a poem in terza rima. The form was invented by Dante and he used it in his work The Devine Comedy. There is no particular length or meter necessary, just the rhyme scheme ABA, BCB, CDC, DED, EFE, etcetera.
My medieval/fantasy side has been vying for attention lately, so I gave in and included dragons and such.
