A Secret Confession
When I was a child and we would sing Puff the Magic Dragon in school it used to make me cry. Whenever we got to this section:
“A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys.
One gray night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And PUFF that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.”
I didn’t like saying goodbye then and I still do not like it now.
