Mother Dragon

Does my appearance SHOCK you? Come now, approach my diamond throne.

Which of my heads is more of a shock? One, two, or three?

Is it our breath? Hah! Arr! Arr! Arr!

Come on now, it can’t be our VOICE. Don’t you like the sound of cawing ravens?

Approach, I say!

What’s that? You think I’m beautiful? Awwww! And kind? You want to enter my service?

Aren’t you a charming fellow! You can look after my mare. But don’t lose her or we’ll eat you.

Arrr arrr arrr!
