The Dancing Dragon: A Poem

The dragon danced
with ants down his pants
and that’s why he danced
when you’ve got the itch
then life is a bitch
all you want to do is scratch
with another to match
The Emperor Wu watched the dragon dance
seeing it quite by chance
and was so impressed
he ordered his courtiers dressed
in the costume of a dragon
and jumping off the wagon
would dance through the streets of Beijing
where there was no peeking
under the dancing dragon’s costume bold
emblazoned in bright colours of red and gold
so the tradition continues each Lunar New Year
where the dragon dances to quite a loud cheer.

      Thanks, Sherrie! 🙂

      Yes, this particular dragon wore pants.

      Although being a half-Chinese and half-Scottish dragon, he sometimes wore kilts.

      But the night before, he spilt a combination of sweet and sour chicken balls and Scots porridge on his McDragon tartan kilt so he had to send them to the cleaners.

      So he was wearing pants the day he sat on an ant hill- an incident which of course led to the invention of the dragon dance.

        And let me guess, that this particular dragon starred in “Brave Heart” with Mel Gibson and wearing kilt. Awesome! LOL
