Once They All Believed in Dragons

What a magical world it would be if we all believed a little more. Wise words and one of my favorites by Jack Prelutsky. Have you seen any dragons lately? 

Once they all believed in dragons
 When the world was fresh and young,
 We were woven into legends,
 Tales were told and songs were sung,
 We were treated with obeisance,
 We were honored, we were feared,
 Then one day they stopped believing - 
 On that day, we disappeared.

 Now they say our time is over,
 Now they say we’ve lived our last,
 Now we’re treated with derision
 Where we once ruled unsurpassed.
 We must make them remember,
 In some way we must reveal
 That our spirit lives forever - 
 We are dragons! We are real!
