A Myth From Back Home

There’s a myth back home about a dragon,
One that made its dwelling in the mountains,
Protecting grand halls of gold within.

⠀ ⠀

The gold runs as deep as the mountain is high.
A treasure horde gathered over many generations.
Yet there is one dragon.

A dragon with a rusted armour of iron,
And a cunning like no other - luring the unwise into a trap.

It sleeps for over one hundred years,
And casts terror on the land for over a thousand.

But it’s only a story, right?
It’s only a myth.
