One Ring to rule them all,
One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all,
and in the darkness bind them’
Ring-verse, J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

To be so mistaken,
so thoroughly err.
There is yet one left
I don’t mean to scare.

We are still forsaken
by the one that I wear;
I have it right here
on my left hand, I swear.

The inscription is different,
of that I’m aware,
the effect is the same though
painful to bear.

So bid me farewell,
under the black shadows’ loom,
I am off, on my way now
to the fires of  Mount Doom…
