In the middle of my 8th or 10th reading of The Lord of the Rings, and I’m getting creeped-out by just how un-earthy the Hobbits are portrayed.

20 Nov 2015 – Hobbit Bathing Song

Whake and Graggle! Gark and Zonk!
Harken to my bath time gronks!
Fouler than a dragons breath –
mushrooms singing in their death!

After weary days of toil
listen while the water boils!
Hobbits sing – both front and rear,
even Nazgul flee in fear!
