A storm of lighting breaks the sky as the dragons begin to stir and wake
Their roar will thunder across the mountains as the very earth will shake
These ancient beasts of might and magic, are fury and strength personified!
How many of you will remember the days when we were told to hide?

Our mothers would wrap us in special blankets and calm us down with song
We would cower in holes like tiny rats whilst our parents acted strong
The Dragon would burn our homes away and all would turn to dust and ash
Our entire lives would be swallowed up! In a single crimson flash...

It used to be a time of darkness, where a man would live in constant fear
Yet we have found a special way, to protect the lives that we hold dear
My friends I must now present to you the warriors of the Chosen Eight
A group of our honoured champions, who will slay the beasts we hate!

Now they ride for the Volcanic Wastes where the Dragon call has sounded!
Before the beast can stand its ground they will have it fully surrounded
One month from now, on this very day, they will bring us back a head
A final proof of the ultimate deed; for we will know the beast is dead

"Death to the dragons and may the Gods smiles upon thee brave knights!"

-Chen Yuan Wen, 17th May 2012
AUTHOR'S COMMENT:

Arrr and thus Dragon Week begins with "FEAR THE DRAGON CALL"

However, I've always chosen to portray the opposite side as the victim, meanin' werewolves and vampires.

This time, I decided to follow the old scheme of myths and portray the humans as the victims, but I also intend to mix it up.

I hope that Dragon Week will be a wonderful experience for all of you.

Now enjoy me poem ;3
