2. Be Careful What You Say

When asked to stand and recite knowledge of the honoured guest’s land, Boromir looked thoughtful for a moment, then announced, “I know a poem.”

“Excellent!” declared the Lord Denethor, smiling fondly at his eldest. “Come, my son -- let us hear it.”

“From Rohan there was a young lass
Whose manners were terribly crass
For a cup of hard cider,
She’d allow any Rider
To fondle her pert Edoras.”

Come the morning, however, there was one less groom in the Steward’s stables.
