The Dragon-Slayer

Jenny was a quiet girl

She never made a sound

She grew up in a violent world

A rag doll, tossed around


Evil, was his confidant

Darkness, left her door, ajar

Absorbed deeply in his confidence

His behavior, cruel and bazaar


Her mind became the battlefield

Her heart and soul the prize

Determined she would never yield

His destruction, filled her eyes


To have her, was his only wish

She found safe, hard, to realize

Her heartbeat was his playlist

He refused to be denied


A love intense, without his fists

To acquire, he could not imagine

She made him pay for his evil deeds

Sometimes it’s the princess, that slays the dragon

    Good for Jenny! Well done.

  • I aspire to be Jenny! She's super badass!

  • And well-slain may he be, so as never to rise again with such temerity & presumption.
