A Wild Dragon

I am a huge dragon I soar and I fly,
I spit fire as I dive high from the sky,
I am covered with scales all over my skin,
Although my toe nails I keep polished green,
For years people search for me they cannot resist,
They think dragons like me do not really exist,
I have a reputation I must guard and protect,
So that I keep scaring people and have respect,
They will not respect me was I not a barbarian,
Or if they find out – I am really a vegetarian,
