In the olden days dragons lived in many places. But over the years they have been mercilessly persecuted by two-legs, and now they are an “in-danger species”, a bit like pandas.
For instance, dragons used to live in England. However a nasty two-leg called George hunted them down and killed them all. Poor dragonsies.
These days two-legs don’t kill dragons, as they don’t know where they live, but they are still regularly guilty of dragon libel. Indeed, a book-maker two-leg called Tolkien wrote a popular book about a dragon called Smaug, which painted dragons in a very negative light. Similarly a recent tee-wee program I watched intimated that dragons love donkeys. I can report this is also false: dragons love other dragons.
However, there is some truth in the myth that dragons like gold; I will explain this in my next article.
The vicious persecution by two-legs has left its indelible mark on dragon culture. Troubled teenager dragons are fond of getting tattoos of two-legs. I think they do this to make themselves feel “grown up”, or perhaps to show that they are “angry with the world”. I met one bright yellow dragon called Lizard-beth, who has a tattoo of a little girl two-leg on her back. As a result she likes to be known as “The Dragon with the girl tattoo”.
