"This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down."
-J.R.R Tolkien, from "The Hobbit"
When the people wonder where their bearded savior's gone
I will stand atop a mountain, tell them to stand strong
As the hours pass, the sound of tragedy and grief
join in with the warring factions fighting to be free
When their bearded fool returns, they won't accept his reign
I shall challenge him to stand and fight or die ashamed
As the hours pass the people fighting slowly die
They'll meet each other afterwards, the gods will hear their cry
And when I die, they'll tell you my story
A hero's tale told of a bearded fool
And why must I be he who trades his blood for glory
A coward's lie behind a champion's veil...
