May I Go Out and Play?
[by S. David] [art by Alan F. Beck]

I guess it isn’t
Only furry non-human
Babies that are
Adorable and cuddly,
Even baby dinosaurs
And dragons can be.
Especially when they’re
Doing what all young
Seem to do, wheedle
Their way from an adult.
Well, mommy was as
Fierce looking as
Anyone would expect
A green winged dragon
To be, when up flutters
One of her little ones
Asking the soon-to-be
Ages old question,
“May I go out and play?”
Now, what’s a mother to do?
What’s a mother to say?
