I Have A Secret Dragon

I have a secret dragon
Who is living in the tub,
It greets me when I take a bath,
And gives my back a scrub.
My parents cannot see it,
They don't suspect it's there,
They look in all directions,
And all they see is air.
My dragon's very gentle,
My dragon's very kind,
No matter how I pull its tail,
>My dragon doesn't mind.
We splash around together
And play at silly things,
Then when I'm finished bathing,
It dries me with its wings.
