Mouth of Sauron – A Lieutenant of Sauron

by Apr 8, 2005Poetry

I am the Mouth of Sauron
Let him speak

Upon the mention of my name
Rocks crack, Mountains shift
Even the treacherous Redhorn
Takes heed from the shadows
Of my footsteps

I come to the Black Gate
I have ridden to the Morrannon
With a token I have been bidden
To reveal to thee
Not with sword do I cut down my foes
Not with spear do I stick my enemies to the wall
Not with axe do I cleave them in two
Even as they lay trembling on the ground
Begging for mercy

But with words have I come
And from words shalt thou fall
I am the Mouth of Sauron
Let him speak

From the depths of the twilight
Have I emerged
To claim the stronghold of Curunir
Once a Dunedain of the North
Now a faithful servant of the South
I will crush you with each fiery syllable
Even as my lord seeks you with fiery eyes
You will all perish under my will

The Nazgul step aside
The orcs quiver in fear
For not with bow do I pierce your shielding
And not with mace do I crush your shield arm
Not with whip do I lay heavy black strokes on your shoulders

But with words have I come
And from words shalt thou fall
I am the Mouth of Sauron
Let him speak
