Tolkiens Tale Told to Tickle
by Steve D. 1. An Ancient Adventure
Bilbo Baggins's birthday brings blessings and burdens.
Conjurer calls. Chilling counsel.
Elrond educates, enlightens, encourages.
Frodo, four, and four form Fellowship for far faring.
Gandalf goes grievously, gloriously. Gimli grim. Galadriel gives
Help in hidden haven. Hobbits happy.
Illusions injure illustrious individual. Ignoble ill.
2. Journeys to Jeopardy
King known. Knights kow-tow.
Legolas longs, loves, learns.
Men march to mighty mountains.
Nobody! Nowhere! Never! None!
Orcs organize overland operation.
Pippin and pal provoke peaceful plant people to powerfully punish proud plutocrat.
3. Quests and Quandaries
Ridiculed ride results in regal regatta.
Swordplay! Shieldmaiden and short sidekick stab sinister spirit, slaying same. Samwise slices stinging spider Shelob.
Two take terrible trip through tortured terrain
Under umbrella of uttermost ugliness.
Valiant victors vote to veer to vie to vex vile villains' venomous visages.
We wonder. Who will win? Wouldn't want to wager.
Exceedingly extreme expedition experiences excellent execution, exciting exit.
Yet yearly yearnings
