Shield, Lance, Dragon Fangs


shield, lance, dragon fangs:
helmeted honor foretold;
soldier on ‘neath flag.

I like your phrase “soldier on ‘neath flag”

“dragon fangs” – Why do we never hear of dragon fangs? As soon as I read this, I thought, “Of course, dragons have fangs. Deathly, meaty, sharp fangs.” But I don’t think I’ve ever seen them referred to! I like all the nouns in line 1, and the words helmeted, foretold, and soldier have such a nice ring (literally) to them, all together.



Wonder Woman jumped her plane
Parachute no where;
Air sailing made the day
Amazons beware!

We aim high! We fly fast!
Wrists of steel we wield;
Rescue work is our forte –
Protect and feed and shield!
