Dragon Watch

DRAGON WATCH 
Bingey the Dragon finds it hard to sleep,
watching movies all day, as he eats.
As his insomnia began to take hold,
a variety of maladies started to unfold.
 

Overstimulation, anxiety, fight or flight,
his sense of reality, freaked out of sight. 
Locked in, on his own, in self quarantine,
spellbound, as dragons fought on TV screen. 
 

Clutching his pillow in horror and dread,
waiting on his mates to snuff out, evil, dead. 
Feeling drowsy and stressed in daylight,
since he’s watched on horrors all night. 
 

Legs up, rigid and huddled on chair. 
stiff and frozen, fixated and scared. 
Breaking free  to reclaim his own power,
Bingey now exercises outdoors, an hour.
 

Reading a book and listening to music,
before he became more edgy and too sick. 
Drinking more water, eating healthy food,
he has begun to have a peaceful attitude. 
 

On Dragon watch he’d previously relied,
on drama from others, to his own demise. 
Feeling fired up, now Bingey can sleep,  
dreaming of new crusades, but more sweet.
 

Whatcha gonna do, if you’re left on your own?
be like Bingey, pause that Game of thrones.

    1. Awesome Ivor, I’m all fired up 🐉

      I love your poetry, it’s flaming hot. So glad to find another dragon seer.

      Other authors talk as if they’re just myths. I live in Perth Western Australia, there are plenty to be found there 😀
