Poem: One King

(Written on 02-16-2003, by me, posted in a now-private LJ entry. Poem based on One Ring poem by J.R.R. Tolkien.)

Three times did Simon Peter the Lord deny,
Seven days God took to create His own,
Nine feet was less than Goliath was high,
One God through His Son His great love has shown,
Through Calvary where Jesus died.

One King to rule them all,
One God to find them,
One Lord to bring them all
And in His mercy bind them
Through Calvary where Jesus died.

Filk: No Phone Lasts… ttto “Into the West” by Annie Lennox

Written at Conflikt 5 and first performed in the Smoked Salmon filk around 9pm on January 29, 2012.

Lay down
your beat and weary set.
Sound is failing,
it has come to journey’s end.
Seek new,
think not of ones that came before.
I am calling
across from the grocery store.

Why do you keep
that crappy phone you must replace?
Soon you will see
all of your fears will pass away;
smartphones won’t harm.
It’s only beeping…

What do you see
in that Verizon?
Why does it drop your calls?
Just cross the street,
your signal rises.
The shipment’s come,
they have your new phone,
and calls will turn
to clear as glass.
A light in the corner,
no phone lasts…

Screen fades,
goes blank and dark as night.
GPS failing,
out of memory and time.
Don’t say “I will get there in the end.”
Your friends are calling
so you and they can meet again.

And you’ll be here, where it’s warm,
not seeking…

What do you see
in that Verizon?
Why does it drop your calls?
Just cross the street,
your signal rises.
The shipment’s come,
they have your new phone,
and calls will turn
to clear as glass.
A light in the corner…
Get here fast!
Droids are the best.

Filk: “One Ring to Rule Them All”

One Ring to Rule Them All
ttto of Glee ballad version of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”
(all because of a misheard lyric)

I stare out from the middle of the night
My wizard says, “I rule all of Middle Earth life”
Well, Sarumon, your time is done
My ring, to rule them all
One ring, to…

Saw my ring in the middle of the night
That wizard says, “Keep the palantir out of sight?”
Well, Gandalf dear, you’re an unfortunate one
My ring, will rule them all
One ring, to…

That’s all I really want…
That one ring, to rule them all

Hobbit inherits my ring of gold
Oh, and he’s hid it away from the rest of the world
except me, I am the burning Eye of Sauron
One Eye, to rule them all
One Eye, to…

That’s all I really want…
That one ring, to rule them all
