Dragon Bengal Monitor – Dragon


Dragons be monsters of myth and lore
Their essence brings fear so very sure
But do these creatures in fact exist?
Or are they figments that dwell in mist?
Dragon slayers do boast they are real
Recounting battles with boundless zeal
Scales, long tail and a mouth that’s afire
A construct of threat, one that is so dire
You may not believe all this legend and stuff
Yes someday you might meet a dragon named Puff!

     This Bengal Monitor is not quite the dragon of legends, but was a thrill to see as it slowly crossed the road in front of us and methodically swaggered into the Sal forest’s dense understory.
