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.
