5. A Conspiracy Unmasked
Greeted by Merry at Buckleberry ferry,
Sinister riders making us wary,
Onward we follow, to Crickhollow,
Spirits high, our fears to bury.
Too scared to laugh, we take the path,
Finding a homely supper and bath,
Then tell a tale, to turn us pale,
Sorting the wheat from the chaff.
We've got eyes and our spies,
We've heard some truths and some lies
About the Ring and everything,
Isn't that a big surprise!
You can't pretend, to a friend,
No matter where your path should wend,
You're not alone or on your own,
We're with you, Frodo, to the end!
