The Last Purple Dragon of Delaware!

…was better known as –
The Last Purple Dragon of Delaware!
Although, it was safe to say,
He was quite unaware,
Of this small feature!

Recently, he was quite aggrieved,
… of the fact that as it was a Monday ..
A known library day of his, he was asked to leave,
… for the small wee hiccup cough,
Which sadly burned down the doorway,
In turn pissing the other readers off!

Not his fault it must be said,
But Dragons and spicy powders most assuredly,
Don’t mix!
However as you can imagine ..
..combatting this is somewhat tricksie!
Being asked to leave by Head Librarian Jeeves
Was quite the peeve …
for a Monday!
Especially ..
 …as it was the fault of that annoying Pixie!

Who giggled and blew pepper into Timothy’s snout!
Resulting in the firestorm that did so spout!
…. From the Last Purple Dragon of Delaware!
“Which was far from regular!”
Everyone said, so it had to be true!
“Why our Timothy, the Last Purple Dragon of Delaware is the sweetest …
…don’t you know!”

The press were told so!

Steve, the Assistant Librarian felt terrible,
… about Timothy’s plight and asked around
His friends, followers and fans..
If perhaps they could lend a hand?
In helping him make Timothy happy again?
“Oh l know?” Ventured one!
“Something that might make his claws curl!!
“There’s a challenge called “Share Your World!
Maybe that might make his day!

So, Steve made Timothy apply his great wisdom,
… The Last Purple Dragon of Delaware …
…. Who was far, far and further far from anything quite as mundane …
…as simply regular!

Timothy loved questions, oh how he adored them so …
…. Which was normal you know

Questions to Timothy!

Where’s the line between respectful disagreement and being downright mean (bullying) to someone?

I have always believed the difference between the two is: Bullying is where the aggressors wish to inflict harm upon another with intent and purposeful deliberation to feel powerful over the other and are quite repetitive in their behaviours where as Respectful Disagreement is more a case of factual statements over emotional opinion and can occur between friends whereas  bullying is not between friends.

The fine line is literally when respect is thrown out of the window and becomes more physical in disagreement terminology.

Would you prefer to live in a world where alcohol was free or where politicians were honest?

Give me the alcohol anyway – the other is more mythical than Purple Delaware Dragons!

What’s one habit you have that your family or friends think is rather childish?

Picking my nose and flicking it at strangers and the childish bit is when l defiantly answer their comments with “It’s my nose and l’ll pick it if l want to!!”

Would you rather go to a big party and rub shoulders with the rich and famous or go to an amazing quiet Garden that hardly anyone has ever visited?

Give me the quiet secret garden any day of the given week – am sick to the back, front and side teeth of celebrities!

  1. This is fantastic. I love the purple dragon Timothy already. Wonderful and whimsical writing! Thanks a lot for joining in my very first challenge.

  2. Shared it on my blog with this comment;
    Rory’s fantastic response to the Prompt, What do you see. Love the funny and whimsical purple dragon, Timothy.

    1. Many thanks and Regular – it was Regular and the Dragon that were my inspiration 🙂

      I saw the Dragon, then saw your word and l wondered if Purple Dragons came from Delaware as that was most assuredly not Regular 🙂

  3. Thanks for Sharing Your World in this unique fashion. I wonder if wee Timothy came a’calling on Chrysalis?? 😉 The dragons will play…. 😀

    1. Pleasure Melanie. Tell me has your parcel arived just yet?

      I sent three parcels out, to you, Suze and suzanne. Suzanne in Texas received her Snifty pens today – l am still eager to know if you and Suze have received your winnings yet 🙂

      1. Yes I got the package this morning! (Friday Nov 1st). I commented on your “King” post about it. And I’ve tweaked the settings on your ‘follow button’ on my Reader to see if things don’t improve vis a vis our communication. Thank you for the great stuff btw! 😀

        1. Hey Melanie, absolute pleasure, super charged knowing you got the packagae through – let’s hope Obsolete Suze had hers arrive as well 🙂
