dragon rider

bluish scales turned green
black claws dug deep in sand
long spiny tail rattled
as it dragged after him
dragon was miffed at the dwarf
who clung to his back
tickling him like a caterpillar
a tiny drip of a creature
mightier than him
he flew high, he flew low
dwarf clung tight like a tick
dislodge him, the dragon couldn't.

"sulk all you can, till eternity
I have you in hypnotic hold-
it being ordained that I ride you"
