Denethor Limericks

After losing both sons in a fight
One dead, but the other not quite
Denethor said of his loss,
I don't give a toss,
Excuse me, do you have a light?

There was an old steward of Gondor
Had two kids, but of one he was fonder
So when he lost big brother
He put a torch to the other
Which is fine if you've got sons to squander.

When Denethor wanted to check
On the news, he said, "hang on a sec"
I've a nifty glass ball
That shows me it all
Who said Middle Earth's not high tech?

It's under a cloth on the table
And I tune in whenever I'm able
He said, then again
I can't get CNN
But it's satellite rather than cable.
