7. Elrond

I am an Elven Lord
My treasures I do not hoard
However, I do no think I oughter
Freely give up my daughter
Until I’m sure he can handle his sword.

Elrond is so full of woe
Because we like to torture him so.
Though his family's all dead
He's still filled with dread:
Fan-fic writers are his greatest foe.

Poor Elrond indeed, I am sure.
To stop this torture he did implore:
"Just wait till the end
of the Third Age and then
I'll be off to my wife in Valinor."

My best friend, of whom I am fond
Forged a very strong link in our bond
When she leaned very near,
Whispering in my ear…
“You know, I’d sleep with that Elrond!”

Here's my contribution to this insanity, in the form of Elrond.

Whilst reclining in my bower
I think of the Rings of Power
And about the danger
If found by a stranger
But worse, if lost in the shower!

I am an ancient Elven Lord
And my treasures I do not hoard,
I do not think I oughter
Freely give up my daughter
Until he can handle his sword.

I was forced to swear an oath
To wait before pledging my troth,
Daddy was getting mad
As having sis’ was bad
However, she now shares my sloth.
