Rudolph the Red-Nosed Jermlaine

[Early for Christmas, and also my earliest written work reposited so far, first shared with the Greytalk listserv, I believe, back in 1997 (the song specifically refers to an article that came out in Dragon magazine that year).]

Without Bigby and Tenser
The Circle has six men.
The Suel in the tunnel
Know Elayne's a vixen.
But do you recall
The most famous jermlaine of all...?

Rudolph the red-nosed jermlaine
Had a very shiny nose,
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glowed.
All of the other jermlaine
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any jermlaine games.

Then one foggy Pelor's Day,
Rary came to say,
"Rudolph, in my Desert Bright,
Won't you guide my troops tonight?"
Then how the jermlaine loved him,
As they shouted out with glee,
"Rudolph the red-nosed jermlaine,
You'll go down in history!"
