Facing Their Dragons

"You Dragons of Deceit, be gone!"
more villagers proclaim, resolved
to face the raging fire breathers
swooping through with monstrous lies.

It's different now:
increased conviction.

Enough have suffered
vicious fiction.

Battle lines
become unclear.

Can truth subdue
and persevere?
