5. Of Songs and Heroes - Part I

“Soldiers don’t sing?” Merry asked Aragorn, confused, for he’d heard Aragorn sing.

“They do,” Boromir amended, “Just not of normal things. They sing of heroes and – oh, all right. Just one then.”

He looked around at the interested group gathered around him. Aragorn and the hobbits nodded encouragingly.

“It’s called Captain Thorongil and the Corsairs.”
