Dragon to the fish bait shop

Hope you all are keeping well on this first wednesday of the year. Now far be it from me to start putting limitations on you and telling you what you can and can't do in this year of possibility and promise. However there is just one small thing I'd like to make you aware of:
A Poem which attempts to dissuade you from bringing your dragon to the fish bait shop
Don't bring your dragon to the fish bait shop
I think you'd find it quite the flop
as outings go. He'd soon say "Stop,
remind me why we came here?"
Flying Lizards aren't impressed by vats of maggots
Doesn't matter how well you dress or flag it
Not even preceded with a good glass of bragget
Your dragon will not find good cheer
Yes he'd rather face a witches cackle
or take on a swarm of swooping grackle
anything but look at all that fishing tackle
he'd find the hooks terribly severe
He'd find the worms all squirmy and yuck
In the one place where his fire breathing would suck
cos of flammable flies, you'd feel like a schmuck
No fish bait shop for your dragon today
