The Dragon Unchained

I saw the Dragon unchained,
The links broken by a thousand blows of the greed of men,
Then His claw marks
On the wall of the building opposite.
The people went mad and fought each other.
Then His fire consumed all,
And his tail reduced the inflammable to rubble.

The mantle of the white lady covered me,
And his fire could not pierce it,
Nor cloud her calm face.
But all about me was desolation,
And drawn despairing faces.

And then all was quiet,
And I saw Death.
