No Place for Dragons

This world’s no place for dragons
Not any more

We’ve killed the magic and the mystery

Not with our science and technology

Zoology or theology

But with our violence and degradation

This world’s no place for magical creatures
Whose wingspan
is only exceeded by their capacity to expand our imaginations

Their iridescent scales can’t gleam in the smoggy light of day
Their curving trunks can’t writhe around trunks in deforested lands
Their undulating whiskers can’t ripple the surface of garbage-filled seas

Their fiery exhalations can’t compete with the scorching of this world

There be dragons
But only in my mind
This world’s no place for dragons
