years ago in a snowstorm I chased
a car all the way across town because
the license plate said ELROND I finally
trapped the King of the Elves in his
driveway invited him to our Lothlorien
Banquet the following night he politely
declined just yesterday I spotted a plate
MDL ERTH  I didn’t chase that vehicle
there was no elven banquet to lure its  
driver the meaning wasn’t certainly sure  
and what if gandalf gimli samwise weren’t
within but gollum with an orgy of orcs?
