Dragons and Butterflies frolic in a land of flowers and trees,
Each their own desire, seeking to please.
Butterflies play and drink nectar from sweet, luscious blooms,
Growing jolly and plump, unaware danger looms.
Young Dragons wrestle and practice controlling their fire,
Feeding their sweet-tooth with tender Butterflies tey desire.
This was how things went since time began,
Naive Butterflies, victim of the Dragons' plan.
Into this land two characters were born,
Purple Spike Arrowtail and yellow Mort Flutterhorn.
In a private garden all purple and green, played Spike,
Trying to catch Butterflies with a net on a pike.
A task not so easy for one young on his feet,
And a feisty yellow Butterfly, not willing to be meat.
"Put up your dukes, you yellow-bellied worm,
I'll fight all the way, if eaten, I'll make your tummy squirm."
Young Spike, quite taken aback by brave little Mort,
Raising his hand with a smiling retort, "What do I do with a bug of this sort?"
Being impetuous, fluttering Mort makes reply,
"As enemies we'll fight, as friends we can fly,
Through this great land of flowers and trees,
Playing tag with the Bluebirds and quick little Bees."
So friends they became, a scene strange to behold.
A Dragon and a Butterfly playing together, a new story to be told.
