Raven's Challenge 88

It is Saturday and time to play with words supplied by Raven's Wordzzle

This Week's Ten Word Challenge will be: Cute, come with me to the Casba, bloodhound, respiration, Facebook, Canada Geese, modern, gravity, spider webs, sea shells
And for the mini: curiosity killed the cat, charming Victorian, railroad tracks, tower, salt and pepper

A Mega Challenge
Setting the Mind Free

Come with me to the Casba
Holding a bouquet of the Calaba
Leave modern Facebook behind
Climb the tower of the mind
Clean out spider webs of doubt
See Canada Geese on route
Gravity can’t pull us down
Your wearing such a cute crown
Respiration slow and steady
Beginning to feel rather heady
Bloodhound yapping on railroad tracks
Want to see what it impacts
But curiosity killed the cat
Charming Victorian cat at that
So think of sea shells becoming plates
Salt and pepper from heaven’s gates
So fly free my soul fly free
Let us become what we should be.

The Ten Word Challenge
Two Great Dragons

We dragons are very pleased that you have liked our history and today we want to introduce you to two of our important historical dragons.
First there is Olympus Facebook. He developed the modern theory of gravity back when you humans were just learning to walk upright. Never mind that cute Newton guy he got his theory from a friendly dragon and didn’t give him one ounce of credit. Then he didn’t get it completely right. Old Facebook was watching Canada Geese dropping sea shells when he realized that no matter where they were when they dropped them they dropped down instead of up. Out of that experience he developed a complex theory of the universality of gravitational forces.
Second is Augustus Bloodhound who can safely be called the father of modern dragon medicine. He is the one who discovered that illness came from germs and that germs could be killed . He gave us the respiration treatment that uses ground up spider webs to restore normal breathing. The Epic poem about his life “ Come With Me to the Casba” is required reading for every little dragon.


  1. Excellent poem Fandango. I am amazed to find out that we have so many discoveries to thank the dragon community for! ;)

  2. I find reading history is very fascinating. I find your history to be of the utmost interest. Thank you for setting the record straight.

  3. I had no idea a dragon first discovered the theory of gravity. You need to tell more people.

  4. I always figured someone must have noticed before Newton did. Thanks for filling in the facts.

  5. O dear. I saw a dead cat today. I wonder if madame curiosity killed her too!

  6. Oh I am learning so much that has been left out of my education.

  7. Well done my friend. :) You dragons can so educate us :)

  8. Thanks so much for another fine poem and more dragon history. I greatly enjoy the weekly honor of learning more about dragon lore.
