Emasculated Dragon

Welsh Tourist Board take note!  The left hand sign shows a real dragon!!

Poor pathetic excuse for a dragon,
An artistic impression, no doubt –
Looks like he’s suffered a drought!
“Impossible” you say,
With the rain in Wales
But have you seen the poor dab –
Shrunken and withered without
His magnificent head
Or his mighty wings and not a claw in sight,
You’d drive right past him at night!

Symbols have meaning
But this one has none,
Oh dear, oh dear, what have you done?
An emasculated dragon,
A shadowful wraith
Who’s lost more than he’s won,
Put our dragon back on patrol:
Let’s remind one and all
By flying him high on our signs with pride,
This is the land where dragons reside!

I have always loved waving to the dragon on my visits home but this new sign, which has been there a good while, has finally made me crack! This poor representation is to be found as you approach Monmouth – Bring back a real dragon!
