Naughty Dragon

dragonsNaughty Dragon,

Did you ignore

My reminder

To take

Your allergy

Medication this morning?

You took it?


That’s your story,

Naughty Dragon?

I only ask

Because I care,

And I know

That the

Pollen count

Is extremely high

In Maine today.

It’s so bad

That I woke up


And sniffling.

The first thing

I did

When I got

Out of bed

Was take

My allergy meds.

Then, I sent you

A text

Reminding you

To take yours.

I’m feeling

So much better,

But you

Still seem

To be sniffling

And sneezing,

Naughty Dragon.

But you say

You took

Your medicine?

Right after

I sent you

That text?

Good for you.

I guess

You must

Have a cold

Or something.

When you have

A second,

The Fire Department

Is here.

They’d like

To speak

To you

About that

Raging wildfire

In the

Western Woods.

Witnesses say

It was started by

A sneezing Dragon.

Some even

Speculate that

The Dragon

Might have

Been bothered

By his allergies,

Hence his constant

Sneezing and the

Bursts of Dragon Fire

That may

Or may not

Have started

The wildfire.

You say

You definitely

Took your

Allergy meds,

Naughty Dragon?

    This has been the worst summer ever for allergies! And now, we start into cold season. *sigh* I hope you and that dragon are not getting sick!
