A TORn Mathom :) Can't Post

I found TORn's "The Hobbit" collector's magazine at my local Stop & Shop over the weekend, and it was such an unexpected pleasant surprise, I wrote a mathom about it. Hope you enjoy :). And P.S. Congratulations to TORn for the great magazine and for getting it such a stellar display spot - it was at eye level right at the corner of the checkout aisles!



Twas two days after Thanksgiving
and all through the house,
there were no leftovers left
to feed even a mouse.

The apple crumb was just crumbly
the gravy like slop,
so off I went glumly
to the big Stop & Shop.

Not feeling festive was I
a right grumpy old lady,
it seemed this was like
holiday food trek number 80.

Away to the store
I drove in a flash,
pulled into a spot
scattering carts with a crash.

I spoke not a word
but went straight to my work,
around slow pokes and stuck carts
and the occasional clerk.

With coffee and list both firmly in grip
I'd just settled in for a long shopping trip,

When what to my wondering eyes did appear,
But Gandalf the Grey, looking very severe!

But his eyes, how they twinkled!
His eyebrows, how hairy!
It was Gandalf, by Jove
in all his wizardly bearing.

And then I saw - lo!
No, not lo, that's a logo!
The OneRing.Net Hobbit
I shouted out, "Way to go!!"

"Behind the Scenes Spy Photos!"
Spoilers galore!
And "the one special effects genius
to really rule them all"!

I grabbed me a copy
a smile on my face,
and through the rest of my shopping
I surely did race.

At home I read through
the magazine there,
page after page
of Middle-earth fare.

And I marveled how well
it all was thought out,
how shiny and professional
it truly turned out.

As I turned the last page
I wanted to send a big hug,
to all those who made it
with such care and such love.

So to TPTB,
thanks for all that you do,
for those who love Tolkien
as much as you do.

There's just one thing more
you guessed it, I bet:

Happy Hobbit Christmas to all
at The One Ring.net
