Men are Weak

We fought together side by side.
A battle of epic proportions
the like as has never been seen.
'The Last Alliance'
the humans called it;
an alliance of Men and Elves
and all free peoples of Middle Earth.
One common foe we faced.
One so powerful
that we feared for our very existence.
Even though we stood strong
-stood united, we lost.
The battle was won.
The son of the King
smote the Ring from his hand.
He was defeated,
his power vanquished.
But Men are weak.
We won the battle,
but that day, we lost the war.
