Dragon Catching

Up the mountain, in that cave,
There lives a fierce and fiery dragon,
And it’s about time someone caught it.
I shall be the valiant knight,
Who stands by to guard with sword in hand.
Josephine and Connor shall be the ones
To slam closed the gates, once the beast is caged.
Tommy will stand by with the lasso in hand,
To rope the creature should it escape.
And now I think that all is ready—
Oh, you? Ah, yes, I almost forgot
You can be the bait!
