Dodo’s the name of a dragon who lived
Outside a castle of stone.
But he was never invited inside,
So he was always alone.
One day he snorted and flames sprouted forth
High in the blue summer sky,
Writing a message in smoke rings it read:
“Oh, how very unhappy am I.”
Now this was noticed some distance away
By Droopy Dragon, who knew
Just how alone one poor dragon could be
When there was nothing to do.
Droopy set off where the smoke rings appeared
For he was anxious to see,
Whether another poor creature could possibly be
Quite so unhappy as he.
Dodo was staggered when Droopy arrived,
Rubbing his sleepy green eyes.
He didn’t know other dragons, you see,
And it was such a surprise.
Two dragons meeting is such an event
That it took only a while,
Till they were friendly and learning again,
How to make jokes with a smile.
Then Droopy took Dodo home right away,
Far from the castle of stone,
Where he was never invited inside,
Where he was always alone.
And ever after they lived happily,
For it was so much more fun,
Sharing a home, where both dragons agreed,
Two is much better than one!
