Four for Bilbo!    

There once was a Hobbit named Baggins    

Who liked his beer served him in flagons.    

            He went with Dwarves for a lark    

            And played riddles in the dark,    

And ended up fencing with Dragons! 

 *******   

Though renowned by his own for solidity,    

Dwarves thought him the height of timidity.    

            But they learned he could think    

            On his toes, at the brink!    

And their respect for him grew with rapidity!    

*******

For fear that in barrels they'd sink    

For air he dared not leave them a chink!    

            So the lids he tamped down    

            And though not one did drown    

Of apples they sickened of the stink.    

*******

He came home a far wiser man,    

And the buyers from Bag End he ran.    

            Though Lobelia got his spoons    

            He found poetical lampoons    

Drove her bats, so he sings them when he can!
