Fire and Lice

- Primula

"Or Gandalf Regards Saruman's Beard"

(based on "Fire and Ice" by Robert Frost)

One heard that I did end in fire;
And thought it nice.
From what I've heard of his desire
I hold that he who favored fire
Didn't know I could perish twice!
I think I know enough of fate
To say for his discomfort lice
Are really great
And would suffice.
