We at the Trollshop.net thought it might be fun to add a few more limericks to the list we already have so here are a few Martin and I came up with. To our surprise when we finished we had told quite a story.
A Troll Tale in Historic Limericks
by Martin O'Calderwood and Grandpa O'Carl
A very young Viking named Lief
Said "In Trolls do I have a belief.
They are ugly and mean
And they smell quite obscene
And I don’t want them giving me grief!
A few hundred years passed in a row.
Stories and pictures by Asbjornsen and Moe
Told in horrible ways
How the Trolls passed their days
In creating for Men pain and woe.
The true Trolls were all totally vexed
Their minds and their hearts quite perplexed.
Blamed they were for foul deeds
Done by other dark breeds
By ogres and giants were they hexed.
True Troll o’re the years had oft spoken
Their secrets and hearts all to open
To the Trollologist’s mind
Came the words of Troll kind
In hopes barriers ‘tween them would be broken.
So the Troll image did gradually improve
As the truth once and for all did at last prove
That to Troll’s Nature’s way
Is what they’re taught to obey
And they seek to without guile or reprove
Then along comes Old Tom Damm and Nyform
Uneeda, Russ, Fosse to all inform
That with Longtails and more
It is safe to explore
How mankind and Trolls now conform
Trolls were once thought of as frightful
They seemed evil and stupid and spiteful
But as humans evolved
The problems resolved
Now Trolls are considered insightful.
