Hear here a tale of yore
Of Hobbit's unlikely adventure
Through a Wizard's wit and guile
Ventured he out of Hole and Hill

Off to the Misty Mountain wild!
Off to the Rivers long and wide!
Off to the Forest dark and deep!
All for the treasures that dwarves seek.

Oh the paths with dangers fraught
Trolls and wolves that need be fought
Spiders weave their nasty work
And goblins all in darkness lurk

Off to the Misty Mountain wild!
Off to the Rivers long and wide!
Off to the Forest dark and deep!
All for the treasures that dwarves seek.

But for courage, wit and ring
Will all perish, death will claim
Save for friendship, kinship true
Darkness Light will not subdue

Off to the Lonely Mountain far
Ruled by the Dragon Smaug in fear
When high and low the journey won
The Hobbit-- There and back again!

Monique Congratulations, (most of) the words rhyme! :)


K.D. Absolutely Brilliant!


Kwesi 章英狮 If you lost your book, me, I can't find a copy.


Emir Never Monique, that's all that matters. :)

K.D., thanks. *Makes a dwarfish bow*

Kwesi, I can lend you my copy next meet up.


Kwesi 章英狮 Yipee, thanks!


Aldrin Do it again! Do it again!


Louize Aw! Emir, this is simply wonderful.


Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly You are the man, as our rhymes suck
Our attempts to poesy puts you in shock
On your left and on your right
Every day and every night
We shall worship and admire you, Emir sire
Lesser mortals that we are, in this literary mire


Emir Never Thy air, Jose, recalls to mind
The wizard wily, wise, sublime
And lest there'll be no end to to this
Unto thy heap I'll put all praise!



Aldrin Yer a stinkin' liar, Emir. Thought ye said yer a poet manqué like me?!


Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly 'Twas his mother who said he's a poet laureate
That was at the time he was taking his baccalaureate
But he humbly says he's a poet manque or a poetaster
He in fact burned his early works in an oven toaster

To his chess friends he's a pawnographer of words
Who likes to mumble poems as he plays the boards
The rhythm of the words gives him erection unending
Suited to his unique lovemaking style, patent pending
