Ranger Rhymes

1. Ranger Rhymes

There once was a Ranger from Bree
Who desperately needed a pee
When the landlord at Straddle
Told him to skeddaddle
He watered his beer for free.

* * *

There once was a Ranger from Snedding
Well known in both tavern and steading
He’d whip out his blade
(For whoever had paid)
And demonstrate skilful beheading.

* * *

When exploring the spice routes of Rhun
A Ranger may hum a new tune
For east of the sun
They make their own fun
On those hidden paths west of the moon.
