Ode to the Last Dragon Slayer

Have a seat and fill your flaggons

The world was once filled with dragons


They flew the skies and lived in caves

Sending many to early graves


Some breathed fire others poison

Melted some left others frozen


Came in many shapes and sizes

Most have met their own demises


The Dragon Slayer killed them all

Avenged the slain and freed the thrall

The Dragon Slayer killed them all

Avenged the slain and freed the thrall


They say that he went on a quest

But was defeated like the rest


Like so many held in bondage

Just another slave is hostage


Kept for years a dragon’s captive

By an ice drake cold and massive


In a frozen cave far away

He just waited for the right day


The Dragon Slayer killed them all

Avenged the slain and freed the thrall

The Dragon Slayer killed them all

Avenged the slain and freed the thrall


At last he knew his chance had come

To slay the beast the battle won


Sprung his cage no longer interred

He found an enchanted halberd


Stalked his captor found him sleeping

His eyes closed with frozen breathing


The weapon thrust deep in his hide

The battle raged the dragon died


The Dragon Slayer killed them all

Avenged the slain and freed the thrall

The Dragon Slayer killed them all

Avenged the slain and freed the thrall
