2. Fathers' Day Card to Denethor
For you Dad from your youngest son
Remember me? The other one
Any chance I could borrow the horse?
No Boromir's out on it of course.
How about, if I mow the lawn
Could I have a go on the horn?
I promise next time to water the tree
But it was already dead Dad – honestly!
Sorry not to have got you a Ring
But the halfling wouldn't part with the thing!
I know I've disappointed you
Getting caught with a dart and a fever too
But you have to admit Dad, I'm a trier
So please don't chuck me on the fire!
There isn't much more I can really say
Except have a wonderful Father's Day!
