Dragoon Is a Funny Word

I long to be a horseback-riding goon,

a cold stream guarding towers of jewels hewn,

a soldier taking photos from the moon,

a brave and stately knave who makes girls swoon.

I long to be a smartly-dressed monsoon,

a uniform upon a red baboon,

a flying lizard in a kids’ cartoon,

a sly and wizened magical buffoon.

I long to be a fighting macaroon,

a button like a shiny picayune,

a banneret across the afternoon,

a legend of the woods like Daniel Boone.

I long to be a beach contrabassoon,

an instrument of peace upon the dunes.
