Orc-Slaying Ditty, The: 2. The Spider-Slaying Ditty

One of my Gondolindrim has written his own version of the Ditty, all about the giant spiders in the Valley of Dreadful Death. I think it is far inferior to the original, but it actually mentions drinking, so here it is:

***
The Spider-Slaying Ditty
(As sung by Egalmoth of the Heavenly Arch)
***



The spiders are reeking!
They beg for a thrashing!
They'll die with much shrieking,
Once our blades start slashing!
O! Tril-lil-lil-lelly,
Giant spiders are smelly!
Ha! Ha!

Our bright blades are stabbing!
The spiders -- expiring!
This feinting and jabbing,
I find it quite tiring!
O! Tril-lil-lil-lally,
Down there in the valley!
Ha! Ha!

The spiders are dying,
And still they keep stinking!
It's really quite trying,
I'd rather be drinking!
O! Tril-lil-lil-lilly,
This song is quite silly!
Ha! Ha!

Here's hoping I never feel inspired to spoof that particular song again.
