You Cannot Swim

- The Foe Hammer

"You cannot swim"
He says to me,
but swim I will,
if that must be.

Not to leave him,
the vow I made.
No simpler task
have I obeyed.

Off to Mordor.
Of course I know.
I fear it too,
though I won't show.

Master needs me,
so swim I will.
Even if water,
my lungs shall fill.

The lights go out,
and now I sink.
But then I feel,
his hand I think.

Master saves me,
and drags me in.
I need his help,
but I CAN swim!
