Limericks for Pippin
There once was a hobbit named Pippin
Who over the landscape was rippin’
When he noticed the hour,
Gave a call to “devour!”
And in apples he soon was a-nippin’.
When the doors of the mine fastly stead
“What will you do?” Pippin said.
Gandalf glowered a look,
“I’ll pick you up, Took,
And I’ll bash it right in with your head!’
There once was a hobbit in youth
Who gave irrefutable proof
That courage, not size
Was the measure of pride
When he flashed forth in knighthood, forsooth!
A hobbit looked into at a sphere
That was dark and filled him with fear.
But a Dark Lord he bluffed,
For his courage was tough,
And Gandalf, thank goodness, was near.
By Fangorn small Pip and Mer-ry
By their wits managed to wiggle free,
Then tipped scales of power
For that guy in the tower
Thanks to an old talking tree.
There once lived the Took in the Shire
Who set Gandalf’s dragon on fire.
It flew off with a bang
He said, ”Do it again”
But was thwarted by wizardly ire.
There once was a Hobbit named Pippin
On mugs of ale he was sippin
He drank a little too much
Fell down as such
And all the way home was a skippin.
There once was a hobbit named Pip
Who gave Farmer Maggot the slip.
He loved his potatoes,
But not ash on tomatoes!
That food-loving hobbit named Pip.
Boromir taught Pippin to use a sword
Just to keep himself from being bored
Little hobbit slashing
Great warrior crashing
Pippin and Merry, prisoners of evil orc horde!
There was a young Hobbit named Pippin
A large pint of ale he liked sippin'
Though trouble he'd find, don't pay it no mind;
with his sword 'gainst the Orcs he'd be rippin'!
- Old Toby
There once was a hobbit named Pippin.
who in trouble always was a slippin'
but when he was needed,
and cautions he heeded,
his merits soon had us all flippin'
-The Foe Hammer
Billy Boyd is a scot
I really like him a lot
He can meet me any day
Please don’t get in the way
Cos he loves me and loves ye not!
- Gimli's Goat
Pippin and Merry captured by the goblins
Slashed with a whip, soon they were hobblin'
Escaped and ran into Treebeard's arms
He vowed to keep em' safe from harm
Gave them draughts of Ent ale, now they're wobblin'
Pippin was such a brave lad
Even when, with Merry, he was bad
He went on the Quest
A tough journey at best
Always a smile for others he had!
Goodnight my friend Pippin, goodnight,
This 'day' for you has been a delight
Even though you are small
You were the favorite of all
And we forgive your lack of 'insight’
