One Tolkien Over the Line

He was a writer, a fighter, an old-timer word rhymer
Always thought free verse was asinine
He was the queerest, the dearest, the tear in your beer-est
and he was one Tolkien over the line

He was archaic, prosaic, euphoric, historic
Made pentagrams optically divine
He was the cheekiest, geekiest, and uniquely freakiest
and he was one Tolkien over the line

He loved cigars and Star Wars, guitars, and sitars
Collages made his artistry torch shine
He was the jivest,  high-fivest, young poet alive-est
and he was one Tolkien over the line

It's not much reward to those who are bored
but are afraid of not acting benign
Sometimes you gotta get riled, and go a bit wild 
and step one Tolkien over the line

Okay, I am now a slushy, sloppy, laughing, weeping, snorting, mushy-touchy-touchy mess. This would have been his favourite, its bold humour, rhyme - the whole damn-you flavour mixed with sweetness. Yup. Nailed it. Kisses on both cheeks - Montreal style - from messed-up me. x and x
