One Ring

 

Even the smallest person

can change the course of the future.

 

One Ring that brings corruption,

a power that’s too much;

One Ring that will enslave you

through a simple touch.

One Ring that now must be destroyed,

for in the world there is no room;

it needs someone to throw it back

in to the lava of Mount Doom.

 

Even the smallest person

can change the course of the future.

 

Men try hard to resist it’s pull;

with help from dwarves, from elves,

who put aside their differences

don’t fight amongst themselves.

Enemies that include the trolls,

orcs, goblins and Uruk-Hai

while attacking from way above

are Fellbeasts in the sky.

 

Even the smallest person

can change the course of of the future.

 

Gandalf will summon Shadowfax,

to lead a final charge,

to clash and fight with enemies

that unite, launch a barrage.

Smeagol has been infected

into Gollum, he’s become,

while all the land around him

steadily becomes undone.

 

Even the smallest person

can change the course of the future.

 

Shelob the giant spider

with her arachnid forces

will work to the benefit

of those malignant forces.

But Frodo, struggles, carries on,

resists the Ring’s strong power,

the Eye Of Sauron at Barad-Dur

observes, with Saruman at Orthanc tower.

 

Even the smallest person

can change the course of of the future.

 

Gollum screams and curses

as the Hobbit nears his goal

to fling that corrupt metal

into that searing red hot hole.

The Ring, at last has been destroyed

it’s power is retracted

corruption banished to fire and flame

while a victory is enacted.

 

Even the smallest person

can change the course of the future.

 

Races fought together,

put their differences aside

until the destruction terminates

and a peace then can preside.

So many lives were forfeit

in the war that ran its course

as banishment was brought about

to that malevolent force.

 

Even the smallest person

can change the course of the future.
