"Blunt the knives, bend the forks,
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!
Chip the glasses and crack the plates,
That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!"
(Movie Quote, but I love the book and the movie all the same)
Voiceless it cries,
Wingless it flutters,
Toothless it bites,
Mouth less it mutters.
Chip the glasses and crack the plates! /
Blunt the knives and bend the forks! /
That's what Bilbo Baggins hates-- /
Smash the bottles and burn the corks! //
Cut the cloth and tread on the fat! /
Pour the milk on the pantry floor! /
Leave the bones on the bedroom mat! /
Splash the wine on every door! //
Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl; /
Pound them up with a thumping pole; /
And when you've finished, if any are whole, /
Send them down the hall to roll!
That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!
So, carefully! carefully with the plates!

"What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?" - Gandalf
Far over the Misty Mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
to claim our long-forgotten gold.
