A Real-life Hobbit

A new age Highlander is here

Ultimate Outdoors Man

Dwarfed by exclusive outdoors gear

Professing a life of eco this and that

With grant aid of course

Announces the desire to live in a hobbit house

No venison, vegetarian

Speaks of grinding hazelnuts

He climbs mountains you know

Ray Mears-wannabe, but thin, too thin

Is this western white man of the 21st Century

Now an expression of latter-day machismo

Minus the muscles

My mountain peasant ancestors and spirits

Look on bemused

As do I

It’s a tough life you know

Being truly hardy

You need a sense of humour <winks>

Not an ultimate ego
