ODOP: Old Danilo (16)

Subtitled: Slavic negative analogies rule! Also multi-headed dragons.

Now the tsar had not sent Ivan out in
Friendship. A dragon of three heads guarded
It like the its mother had guarded her eggs,
And as Ivan tramped through the water (it
Was shallow enough, to him) she swooped
Down to meet him. It was no private at
A stand-up meal of cornbread: It was
A prince who devoured three heads of dragonflesh.
Even he splashed, a bit sick, after that.
His dogs ran ahead and led him on.
