'Da 'Erbs I Be Taekin'' - Poem by Ian McArthur

(I play world of warcraft. one of my characters is vaguely Role playish and as a random idea and funny thing to do I thought I'd have her write some parodies of famous poems that are based on her experiences in Azeroth. anyway, I hope WoW players will understand it, and that even those who don't know a thing about it will appreciate parody) Try to guess the original poem

*The character is a troll ((Jamaican voice)) with a particularly odd accent, thus the gloriously bad spelling*

Da 'erbs lead off through Straangaltorn Vale
Dey takes ya by da 'orde and a-lie-uunce booht
I wandere along da windin' 'erb trail
Don't matta ta dem if I waer ledter or mail
'Erbin bae special en' dat bae da truet!

Deres always annuda 'erb in dis juungel maze
En' dey takes ya through da tick en' tin of it
But den dey be splitten' off in tue dif-ren ways
An wantin' booht in mae 'erbin craze
I bae puttin' ta yoos dat yoos-fel troll wit.

Booht of dem be handy fer mae inscrieben' trade
Soz i can mill dem down for da pen en' da page
tough't 'go for 'ees whiskas and leave da leaf-fade'
Den thinkin' of how 'erbs lead ta more 'erbs
I wondered if a visit eet'd evar be paid.

I bae tellin' ya dis now, no tall tale
since 'avin' bin 'erbin in dat jungle out dere
Doose 'erbs split off in Straangaltorn Vale en' I-
I made sure ta mount up en taek dem booht
En' dat has mead all da dif-rans.
