Wormtongue

- Ringwraith-Wife

A Ballade for Grima


In Edoras we see him there
So pallid, pale and deviate
In shadows stands by kingly chair
Sees Eowyn, he's all frustrate.
He wants her, but she's not his fate.
He watches her, his feelings clear
He begs THE WIZARD, soul prostrate
And SAR-U-MAN turned with a sneer

HER HEART IS COLD, THOUGH FACE IS FAIR
AND THIS IS WHAT YOU ADULATE?
Pray, tell me what I must do, clear
IF THEODEN HIS MIND VACATE...
I'd sell my soul... YOU SEAL YOUR FATE
... do anything to hold her near
THEN YOU SHALL HAVE HER FOR YOUR MATE
And SAR-U-MAN turned with a sneer

All plans fell through, it wasn't fair
His evil deeds evaporate
Drat! Gandalf, Elf and Dwarf, the pair
Of hobbits, Ranger. "Castigate
You All!!" he cries, rides fast and straight
To Isengard: the WIZARD'S ear
He sold them all to compensate
And SAR-U-MAN turned with a sneer

For Wormtongue sorrow comes too late
At Gandalf throws the Palantire
From sheath he pulls his sharp help mate
And SAR-U-MAN turns with a sneer
