Parody: All that is gold does not glitter…

I am an enormous fan of Tolkien and all his works. Naturally, after exploring the appendices, related wiki pages, fan fictions, and other works by Tolkien, I felt the guilty temptation to write my own little something based on his original poetry. Please note that I am not trying to be degrading, this is just genuine, fan-produced work. Without further ado, here is my fun revision of “The Riddle of Strider”.

All those who read are not foolish

Not all fiction is false

The tales that are long do not weary

The princess is not kissed by the frog

From the library a plot shall be Kindled

A light from the bookshelf shall spring

Renewed shall be the overdue novel

The reader again shall be me.


Read the original poem from Chapter 10 of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Fellowship of the Ring” here.
