Miscounsel of Elrond

"One ring to rue them all,
one ring to fine them,
one ring to bling them all,
and in the darkness blind them."

So were the words of Ganondorf
wizened and wise in many ways
but he is blind and senile
way past youth and his better days.

Miscounsel words to the council
to the varied assembled races there
who now abstain from gold and wealth
forgo all fashion, they did swear.

Yet without the need for money
the walls broke of doubt or mistrust
they learnt to share with each other
forming an alliance as needs must.

For when the Eye looked on them
It faltered, in its confusion,
at the sight of diversity
of the races mixing in fusion.

They were not one, but now; many
evil thwarted by a lasting light:
lamps, beacons, candles, bulbs, torches, fire
and together banishing night.

Illuminated austerity
shone forth from all the free fair folk
all united against the dark lands
and because Ganondorf misspoke!

Entry 21 for NaPoWriMo2021. Based off of prompt 28: "28) When Gandalf deciphers the writing engraved on Bilbo's ring, he uses an incorrectly programmed online Black Speech of Mordor to English translator. What does the Wizard recite that offends Elrond and the others attending the secretive High Council meeting?"

Ganondorf may be a doddering old bloke, but his bad words turned out good.
