1. The Decidedly Unfriendly Beasts
With dusty bunnies, yea, they accrued
And the evil beasts around me stood
Nuzgûl, sharp-fangèd, bred their brood
"I," said the first one, mangy and brown,
"I carried you up Caradhras and down
"I carried you straight through the stop light downtown
"Tsk," said the first one, mangy and brown.
"I," said the second, evil eyes red,
"I gave you the tale of Rohan's undead
"While tomorrow's text lay still unread.
"Heh," said the second, evil eyes red.
"I," said the third, with pearly claws fine
"I gave you the tale of Halbarad's line
"So that you forgot your traffic court fine
"Oops," said the third, with pearly claws fine.
"I," said the fourth, of fearful fang,
"I whispered that story about Dúrin's Bane
"And distracted, you fell off your bike yet again
"Ow," said the third, of fearful fang.
Thus every beast by some bite fell
Did inopportunely my attention compel
And forced my pen its tale to tell
So writers, ware the nuzgûl's spell!
