On the Need for the King

Orcs marched upon the Pelennor
trailing death and terror in their wake.
They slew both man and beast, for
their mission was the realm to take.
Upon the city rained heads and fire;
torn apart were fields and land.
The town lands no more were verdant,
for after axe and sword and fire,
the need for the true King’s healing hand
came ever to be more urgent.
The golden Riders broke the siege;
their Lady the Nazgûl Captain slew.
Upon the Corsairs came our new Liege.
with our own men the ships to crew!

LOL, I'll add you to my list! There are 4-5 LJ's where my comments duplicate. I try to go back and delete the duplicate when I can.
