Entertaining poem there! I'm absolutely certain Legolas's song was better, and what a wonderful person he is, to give the prize to Bard.

This poem inevitably makes me think of "The Devil Went Down To Georgia"-it's about a singing duel between Bard and Legolas to settle a contested wager, with the "Orkestra" waiting about to take out the loser. Clever in its word play, irreverent, and just down right funny-if you have a sense of humor, you will laugh.
