What fun to be had, hopping from book to book,
To meet Peregrin, the fool of a Took,
Or perhaps hatch a dragon, or speak dragonese,
Adventures that come and go as you please.
I’d love to intrude on journeys bizarre,
To avoid His Eye, to travel afar,
But as the Black Riders come to kill us all,
I’d much prefer reading to taking the fall.
*If you didn’t get the references, my choices would be the journey in Lord of the Rings, the egg-choosing in Eregon, and learning Dragonese in How to Speak Dragonese.
