A seasonal parody: What Smial Is This?
Message:

From last year; hopefully I’ll manage a new one before the year’s out!

What Smial Is This?
To the tune of “What Child Is This?”

What smial is this which, laid to waste,
Greets us at journey’s close?
Strange goings on while we’ve been gone,
More than Barliman did disclose?

What smial is this, that closes gates
And hangs up signs and notices?
“No this” “No that” – No beer? My hat!
Some welcoming home this is!

This, this is not our Shire
For which we endured danger dire.
Home, home, we’re home at last –
But not yet able to rest.

Why lack you all for food and beer,
And most of all hospitality?
You’ve no pipeweed? Villains take heed –
We don’t hold with such brutality!

If we hear “not allowed” much more,
You’ll see what our travels have taught us:
A lot of Tom-fools with lists of Rules
Are naught to some foes who’ve fought us.

This, this is not our Shire
For which we endured danger dire.
Home, home, we’re home at last –
We’ve come to set all to
rights.
