What the dwarves started to sing…

This morning, I celebrate reaching the goal of even one poem thoroughly concordanced:

[01.064] Chip the glasses and crack the plates!
Blunt the knives and bend the forks!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!

[01.065] Cut the cloth and tread on the fat!
Pour the milk on the pantry floor!
Leave the bones on the bedroom mat!
Splash the wine on every door!

[01.066] 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!

[01.067] That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!
So, carefully! carefully with the plates!

Not bad at all. I have left out:

  • The – 13 times
  • And – 5 times
  • On – 4 times
  • A – 2 times
  • Is – 2 times
  • Them – 2 times
  • That – 2 times
  • With – 2 times
  • What – 2 times
  • When – 1 time
  • If – 1 time
  • Every – 1 time
  • Any – 1 time
  • In – 1 time
  • Up – 1 time
  • Down – 1 time
  • To – 1 time
  • You – 1 time
  • Have – 1 time
  • Are – 1 time
