 Romantic Notions By Ivy Rose

Franklin the dragon sat begging in the town square.
It was so hot that day that he wore only his underwear.
He held his cup high with both of his clawed hands,
the cup was empty except for the two rubber bands.

Franklin was embarrassed about his state of affairs
not only was he hungry but his rent was in arrears.
An unemployed dragon with not a princess in sight
and no villagers were there for him to terrorize and bite.

Franklin shed plenty of his most unfortunate tears.
He tried to rock and roll his way through all of his fears
He got up and danced until he was whipped into a sweat.
And then his cup was filled with coins that paid for his debt.

Franklin is now sitting at his brand new kitchen table
and his brand new house has the very best in TV cable.
He is no longer a hungry, sad, unemployed dragon.
His dancing has hitched him up to the money wagon.
