Lord of the Rings as written by others

I've been too busy the last couple of weeks to keep up with some of my blogreading, so this one escaped me until now. Teresa has a link back to a compendium of selections from The Lord of the Rings if it was written by other authors, as in e. e. cummings
the ring being Brand
-new;and you
know consequently a
little big i was
careful of it and(having
thoroughly shined the elvish
script checked my pocket felt of
its chain made sure it was around my neck O.

K.)i went right to it jammed-it-on my finger straight …
and Lennon and McCartney,
Once there was a way to get to Mordor
Hope there’ll be a way to get back home
Sleep Master Frodo, do not cry
And I will watch for Uruk-hai
Part of the fun is figuring out who the "writer" is, so I won't include anymore (the two above were obvious enough that I don't think I ruined them for anyone). I think my favorites are 4, 11 and 15. Check 'em out!

(One more - you figure this one out)
Oh, the quest is bigger
It's bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
To destroy this cursed ring!
Oh no, I've gone too far,
I put it on.

That's me going to Mordor
That's me in the Eye's sight
Losing my One Ring
Trying to keep up my strength
And I don't know if I can do it.
Oh no, I've done too much,
I haven't done enough.
