dragon

byMyZenTrail©

ancestral tales
tell of fire breathing dragons
that ruled their lands
and lived in caverns
they took it baskets of food
so that their children weren't taken

and yet today
in the electronic age
we offer it our teens and a tax,
an internet fix of calculated percentages
and suffer from its political decisions
praying we don't get burned

everyone knows
the larger you are the more you eat
devouring our declaration rights
snacking on our morales
we've fattened the
dragon
