The Darkest Lord, by rhymer23

My plot to dominate the world initially was glorious,
But then Men came from Númenor, unstoppably victorious,
And so I bowed my head to them and feigned to be surrendering,
And went in chains to Númenor… of course I was pretend-ering!

(And oh goodness, the header is in verse. And the notes. *chuckles again*)

Sauron applies for his job, by hhimring

‘I’m able
and I’m capable.
My filing is impeccable.
I’m utterly dependable,
my loyalty unshakeable.’
‘Admirable, commendable’, muttered Morgoth politely and yawned discreetly into his smoking black palm.


Right, so two of my favorite Tolkien fanfic authors wrote poems for the latest lotr_community challenge, and they are a joyous comedic thing to behold. Sauron singing verse worthy of G+S, and in one case all-out filk. Reminded me, for some weird reason, of that comedic masterpiece where Denethor deals with the boys' pets. These are well-worth a read on their own merits.

Full disclosure: these are the only two submissions I've read so far for the current GFIC challenge. For all I know they're all utterly brilliant. Head over to lotr_community to check out the haul.
