Here I give a tale of mine, so listen young,

listen old

and watch as this story unfolds

deep in past and history,

I sing this song,

of bravery:

Once upon a night-time dream,

I thought I saw a fat old lady scream!

she was large and wrinkly,

and the screaming was sickly.

Then it all changed,

and to Runescape came.

but the land was strange

and the graphics made acclaim!

A man came to me

"Hey sonny can you see?"

"Ues" I said "I can"

"Ok,Ok, then boy, grab your armour and follow me!"

Thinking this odd, and

that this old man could be a fraud

I grabbed my great dragon axe and followed him to see

his facts.

To a great crest he took me

my mind boggling

his hair fuming

"This is your test, oh knight,

kill the dragon,

and save the night"

Not understanding,

failing to find my standing

I grabbed a hold of self

and went ahead to the crest.

Over the crest was a mountain

with a great hole leaping.

drinking my strength not

I entered without a thought.

Inside was a Black Dragon

huge and scaly tall and fiery

But asking god to protect me

I started to attack, pretending Iím friendly the

dragon fell for the trick

and so I began my attack!

Slash and block

smash his conk!

It was a deadly fight

in which the one who won was much ahead in might

I smote the dragon, and bashed his head

and to my great surprise,

he did indeed fall down dead!

And so the night was saved

and the old man did he praise

the gaping hole did cave

and I got a Medal,

for the deed I did was brave

Yes my friends,

this tale is true

it teaches us of life

and of great virtue

Here I must depart my tale

and ends for ends

for my friend who lends

money and wisdom to me

for those are the most hidden in my treasury.
