It was inside this local thrift shop

That I found what I thought was a mop.

But it turned out to be a broom

With a small dragon image on that heirloom.

That was when I found it interesting

Enough to take home and do some sweeping.

But after I started sweeping on the kitchen floor,

I saw something that made me think my eyesight was poor.

That image became a real dragon and flew

Out of the window to look for its own crew.

Of course, that made me want to take a hop

Out of my place and back to the thrift shop.

Once there, I saw the owner having a terrible itch

And it was due to a visit from an angry witch.
