Green Tea For A Green Dragon

Green tea for a green dragon

because he was on the wagon

his early days he spent drinking green absinthe

which caused him to lose his common sense

and so this led him to join AA

to escape the clutches of the green fair-ee.




Although he was no Oscar Wilde

he was considered a precious child

-a youthful 1000 years-

at concerts he gave many bronx cheers

and although he tried to be another Charles Baudelaire

his style of French just could not compare

and so he tried painting like Toulouse-Lautrec

but only ended up a nervous wreck

and he lost the chance to meet Hemingway

when he missed the train at Santa Fe.



And so his youth was misspent

he had no money to pay the rent

and thus he ended up on the street

where gangsta dudes made fun of his feet.

“I can’t help being a dragon,”  said he

burying his heart at wounded knee

and so he went on the wagon

this absinthe drinking green dragon

and that’s why these days you’ll only see

our hero dragon drinking green tea.

    LOL! Absinthe could become a wonderful addiction at least until the reality cops showed up. Great poem Chris! Can’t go wrong with a dragon. 😀

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      No, dragons are fun.

      Although it is a challenge to get their muddy footprints off the furniture. 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        Bwaaa haaa haaaa! so that’s what happened to all my furniture. 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Makers of Bavarian Magic Mushroom Stain Remover products are very grateful to dragons. 🙂

      • Hyperion said,

        They are the rise in every housewife’s cake.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Just like paintings of Sherrielock are the rise in every lobster’s antenna. 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        I can’t wait for Ya Ya Han to do a cosplay outfit of Sherrielock. Oh my, that will get a rise out of me!

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, you’ll give a whole new meaning to the command, “All rise and stand at attention.”

      • Hyperion said,

        LOL! A new internet sensation is born. 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, one that probably has been already tried.

        I remember there was a blogger at Xanga (one who now I think about it did look a lot like Ya Ya Han) wrote a blog post complaining about the fact that so many male bloggers were sending her as messages pics of erect portions of their anatomy and what led them to think that she’d be impressed by this.

        I of course never engaged in such Animal House style college fraternity like pics of my anatomy and so she read and admired my blog.

        I wasn’t just a penis as far as she was concerned.

      • Hyperion said,

        OMG! Just think of all those traumatized analysts over at the NSA who had to examine each picture and do analysis to determine if they belonged to anyone of interest. The fact no one was arrested seems to indicate a great deal of disappointment in the results of the analysis. Size does matter after all, I guess.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, no doubt health insurance claims for PTSD are rather high among former NSA analysts.

      • Hyperion said,

        I never thought of the hazards of the job until now.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes after a day of analyzing messages sent to Yaya Han, they go out the door singing a paraphrased version of a Gilbert and Sullivan song, “An NSA analyst’s lot is not a happy one.”

      • Hyperion said,

        It explains Snowden’s breakdown more clearly. Surely he was a victim of his work environment.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,


        I hear Vladimir Putin draws the line at having his intelligence analysts analyze photos of phalluses of immature males in the 18-24 age group who suffer from overinflated egos that tend to make them unable to perceive their under inflated frontal joy sticks – pictures of which that they send to attractive female bloggers.

      • Hyperion said,

        I was raised in a different society. I would never want THAT mugshot available for wide distribution on the internet. What’s wrong with these fools?

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        That really is the trillion dollar deficit question.

        When I watch movies from the ’40s and ’50s and the personalities in them and the values they reflect, I wonder what the Hell has happened these past 70-60 years?

        The only thing that has come to mind is that a possible brain eating plague was unleashed on the world many decades ago.

      • Hyperion said,

        I’m sure it was a Cold War virus that got out of the lab.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,


        The end result was that one Cold War superpower the Soviet Union split apart and the other Cold War superpower America has elected a long succession of Lunatics-In-Chief.

        It will be next to impossible to put that genie back in the bottle.

      • Hyperion said,

        I think this next iteration will be even worse. Not one candidate has the markings of a leader.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        No the torch has been passed to a new generation of idiots bred by TV, undisciplined by schools and forfeit of rational thought…

      • Hyperion said,

        We’ve gone from pork barreling ganstas to Barnum and Bailey assclowns.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Proving the truth of Barnum’s statement, “There’s a sucker born every minute” although in the last 25 years of politics, it appears that there has been a sucker born every one sextillionth of a millisecond.

      • Hyperion said,

        I think that pretty much covers the population. Hopefully someone will develop a smartphone app called Conscience that will teach us how to act like well adjusted citizens or shut off our internet until we correct our bad behavior. I know I’d get sorted out fast to keep my connection. 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, that’s probably the best way to go.

        Take the Internet away until people shape up.

      • Hyperion said,

        This may go the route of be careful what you ask for, you may get it. 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, that’s what I’m afraid of. 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        Chris, Me and Miss Lee are going for that $1.3 Billion lottery. We plan to buy a dump truck load of happiness with our winnings. I’ll get me one of those Hillary servers and have my own internet in a closet.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I see plenty of Canadians are crossing the border to buy the $1.3 billion lotto ticket.

        Lots of news stories about that.

        A Facebook friend of mine in Toronto posted earlier today, “Any one want to car pool with me to the U.S. to buy Lotto tickets?”.

      • Hyperion said,

        Yes, we had to move a satellite to monitor the border. I’m sure Trump will build a wall to stop the invasion. 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, I’m sure Trump will be putting up another Wall. 😀

        If he’s elected President and America finds itself surrounded by walls, the ghost of Ronald Reagan will appear alongside Mikhail Gorbachev and say, “Mr. Trump, tear these walls down.”

      • Hyperion said,

        Hahahahaahah! The Ghost of Presidents past.
