I dreamed....

I dreamed last night
of a dragon,
green scaled,
fire-breathing,
fork-tongued,
and hungry.
Taking a hint from his more civilized cousins,
he shape-shifted until
he became a man,
intense and charismatic,
who then became  a politician.

He ate the supporters
of his opponents
when the press wasn't looking,
and an opponent or two
for appetizers,
had shiny brass buttons
on his chest,
and a trophy wife
in the best Jackie Kennedy fashion,
wore an expensive suit
and wanted to rule the world.

Eh, sounds like a Doctor Who episode,
I thought, waking up,
or maybe real life -
haven't been able to decide.

It was a night of wild dreams last night, but this one in particular stuck with me.....
