BLUNT THE KNIVES
Blunt the knives and bend the forks!
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!
Chip the glasses and crack the plates!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates.
Cut the cloth and tread the fat!
Leave the bones on the bedroom mat!
Pour the milk on the pantry floor!
Splash the wine on every door!
Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl
Pound them up with a thumping pole
And when you’ve finished, if any are whole
Send them down the hall to roll!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!
