The Dragon

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Silver screen

Look into the eyes of the dragon and despair.
The beast is released.
They thought it tame
Thought it was a game
Now
It's free
And they will pay the consequences
Of their fear

The quote, the first line of the poem, is from my favourite film, Excalibur by John Boorman, spoken by Merlin.

Nicole Willamson as Merlin
