The learned academic’s at the local seat of learning

were slightly bemused to have spotted this beast

it was stopping the students learning

at the very least

You see this mystical beast had found a home

somewhere she could rest her legs

atop the library marble dome

a place she could lay her eggs

while the library staff all turned and frowned

dressed in their academic gowns

the animal studies group as one did smile

and hoped that she’d stay around for a while

and artists spent their nights on the lawn

drawing the dragon from daybreak and dawn

making their sketches till the sun went away

when they’d go back to the dorms till sun shouted “hey!”

As for the dragon, the academics guest

on the library roof, she made a comfy nest

till her eggs did open, and her children said “hi”

and together around the airspace they’d fly
