If I could, I would…

I participated in a creative writing workshop in Toronto today, and one of the writing prompts was called, “If I could, I would…” I had ten minutes on the timer, and this is what I wrote…

If I could, I would…

Wield swords made of castle-forged steel.
I would ride into glorious battle,
With my brothers and sisters beside me,

On the back of a Dragon.

Black membranous wings would block out the sun,
Casting my enemies into shadows and darkness.
Their screams of despair would be music to my ears as Dragonfire ignited the battlefield below me.

I would stain the earth red with flame and carnage.

I would pillage their lands, and sack their villages.
I would take all they had, and give nothing back.
On the back of a dragon.

S. L. WYLLIE
