5. The Ballad of Gollum
~The Ballad of Gollum~
Gollum was a scrawny bugger
but sneaky as a New York mugger
agile as a spider monkey
this Gollum was a jewelry junkie
twin personalities, Gollum called Stinker
and Smeagol, also known as Slinker
who loved raw fish and birdses crunchable
but considered elf-bread most unlunchable.
For a gold ring, this naughty Smeagol
did throttle his cousin, luckless Deagol;
now, clad in little but a thong
he followed Sam & Frodo long
determined to retrieve his Precious
whose hold on him was sore tenacious
he led the hobbitses into the lair
of a spider the size of a grizzeldy bear
poor Frodo stung and left for dead,
Gollum proceeded then ahead
unaware that Samwise the Brave
his dear master soon would save
nonetheless, Stinker tailed the pair
up the volcano's rocky stair
the Ring from Frodo's hand he nipped
but lost his footing soon and slipped
in boiling lava he was swallowed
his Precious hard upon him followed
Frodo & Sam were picked up by eagles
but no bird would rescue poor Smeagol
Sauron's tower split and cracked
and gave him a monstrous cataract...
Middle Earth was saved, hurray!
Gollum's treachery won the day
Moral: the most nasssty blokes
may save the world and all its folks....
