Mainly Mania, 8

(obsession doggerel)

Ring Around the Burglar: kleptomania

We all love Bilbo—got the ring.
Yes, he could steal most anything,
But he was gifted with the bling.

We shouldn't give him too much flack—
For Bilbo went there (there and back)—
But such a kleptomaniac!

But Smaug was not at first impressed—
A Fellowship! A hopeless quest!
But then an arrow in his chest

Knocked Smaug down from the fiery sky
Into the lake (they watched him die)—
Oh, Bilbo Baggins! What a guy!
