This Story, Hmmmm! - Poem by DOMINIC PREMPEH

A warrior went to war and captured a dragon
It could have killed the dragon
It could have tied it to a tree or stump to die

He preferred to bring it home
And did not love to keep custody
Of the dragon he captured

He gave it to a neighbour
A weakling who couldn't even go to that war
To keep the dragon

This neighbour can't even solve conflicts in his home
His family is so hungry and fragile out of starving
He is troubled to the bursting level

And the warrior has given him the dragon
Maybe the warrior wants him and his family killed
If not why should one give a monster to a weakling to detain
