The ‘Tails’ of Little Purple – Part 10

They’re Everywhere

by Night Blade*

So that other dragons could see him walking about
His mother did give him a flag to wear
Strapped to his back
It fluttered up there.

It didn’t help that there were bullies about
That they bent and snapped his flag and knocked him about
And before too long he was black, blue and purple too
What, oh what is sad Little Purple to do!

His parents did demand
For the culprits to come forth
And when they were found it did astound
That there was family in that rotten gang.

His sisters and brothers in that gang did say
That Little Purple was an embarrassment and a shame
He should be locked away
And never let out!

“There it was for the world to see” thought Little Purple
“The difference between my brothers, sisters and me”

But to those dreadful bullies surprise
A mighty dragon stepped forth
A warrior of great renown
A teacher at the school
The Weapons Master you see
He did state “That they brought shame to dragon fame!”

One of the bullies not so tall
Stepped up and said with a shout
“My honour to reclaim
Little Purple’s protector I must be!”

So it was decided
So it was said
That these unlikely two
Classes together will take.
