2018 Sonnet 27

Chinese dragons have no wings. Over there
Nature didn’t sing scale Occidental.
They do have scales. Just sayin’. If you care.
Their European cousins live in mental

Space that’s much the same. Breathe fire. Scale armor.
So what’s the deal with feathers on the wings?
Eyelids, not like snakes, and such. There’s far more
Features shared than not between those two things.

Europe dragons fight Knights of Round Table
Chinese dragons shield emperial power.
Feral dragons flying free disable
Dragonmaster’s dream in ivory tower.

Sunrise dragons are stuck behind the Wall.
Sunset dragons won’t answer when you call.
