1. Isildur's Foolishness

The Last Alliance defeated Mordor
Sauron did not trouble them anymore
Many brave people died that day
Still they thought things turned out okay

But alas Isildur kept the ring
Into Orodruin he would not fling
His precious weregild for Elendil's life
He could not know that it would cause strife

Elrond tried to stop him
But he wouldn't listen
The ring was too strong
And so prettily glistened

So Isildur took the ring with him to Arnor
Where Elrond couldn't bother him anymore
But he was ambushed by orcs on the way
To his death Isildur's gold ring did betray

Though Isildur died, the ring lived on
And it would be found in days of yon
So sad that Isildur could have averted
The return of a dark lord oh so perverted
