    Bedtime Story

    "and in the dragons golden eye

    dwells a life of refining fire,

    accursed child of alchemy,

    to purge a heart and render pure

    the grossest ore, see foul flesh fry

    as in a mighty breath to cure

    all thought of immortality

    for gilded youth who interfere

    in red wine's chaste virginity."

    Laurel's salve freed

    sharp tongue's fetter,

    its philtre held no love for her.

    Shaken, yet staid in face of fear,

    he stated in tones Stentor clear,

    "Stay witch, withhold your bedtime tale

    lest nightmare let loose Legioned hell!"

    Dragonseed sowed, it's all in vain,

    it only remains to intone

    "Hecate grant a wasting spell.

    With spear and shield, Jason, sleep well."
