the law of draco

there are no shadows but we need to hide
from the long dragon in the western sky
we fear the searing glance of his bright eye
and his insouciant ominous glide
we do not dare his flames now to deride
all of our courage turns into a lie
while the winds carry our despairing cry
he is upon us in his towering pride
no swarm of heroes comes up from the sea
to save us in the depth of all our fear
we are alone and have to face our fate
there is no use to even try to flee
nor to attempt what giants would not dare
the moment that we see him is too late
