Eowyn and Merry defeat the Witch-king.

Written for the 20th Anniversary of the Valar Guild with its theme: victory over adversity.
The poetic form is called a "Landay", written in couplets of nine and thirteen syllables. It may have originated with nomadic caravans in South Asia circa 1700 B.C. It is currently used in Pashto, a language of Afghanistan and Pakistan, normally sung, and usually made by women. In English, it's usually unrhymed, but I found I didn't like it unrhymed and changed it the next day to rhyme.
Thus Eowyn is the point of view for the once-nomadic Rohirrim.
