A storyteller sat beside a campfire,
Strumming on a golden lyre,
Waiting for the caravanners to gather around,
So that he could his story expound.

Have you heard about the Dragon Pearl,
The gem that glistens with a rainbow swirl,
And is desired by knights and fairies,
Seeking the location of evil adversaries.

It's said the pearl is guarded by a troll,
Who through ancient libraries likes to stroll,
Or sits in the median of crowded highways,
Offering the pearl to anyone who pays.

Only wizards of the gold dragon's house,
Can the pearl's power safely douse,
Others who touch this exquisite gem,
Are transformed into a troll or djinni.
