"Oh hell," said George, "Why not? I'm in"
And offered his cup to the flagon
"It's bound to just a large rodent or dog
'cause there's no such thing as a dragon."
All dolled up was he the next day
All shiny brass, red, white and blue
Full of bluster was he 'till the smoke and the flame
Then decided he needed the loo.
But George was brave, despite all this
And from somewhere deep down within
He mustered up all of his courage and yelled
"Red Bull give me wings!"
George and the dragon fought long and hard
(They both went without any dinner)
But in the end, if truth be told, and it must
There could only be just the one winner.
So it was on that day that George prevailed
And smote that dragon so sweetly
And the monster gasped with it's last dying breath
"I thought it was to be, but it was not to be."
