He said, ''Gurgle, don't ask me, for that I can't do
If you had the Ring, then I'd feel sorry for you,
For no fingers have you, and your toes are nowhere.
So you can't wear a ring, can you now? Have a care.''
Gurgle pondered on this and said, ''Dave, you're correct
In your logic, but... sorry. Your plea I reject.
For the Ring I can swallow. In me it can hide
And its magic keep working while me it's inside.''
Dave quickly decided this creature was clever
And he realised arguing could take forever
So he flattened himself to the ground and lay low
And hoped that this Gurgle would just accept ''No!''
Nought was said for a while and then Dave heard a snore.
So redoubled his efforts to look for a door
When all in a flash, a sound came to his ear.
The tiniest of voices squeaked ''Dave. Over 'ere!''
