...a kingdom of isolation - jk.
A small young chap went on a journey with some friends and was inspired to write this poem about one of his traveling companions. Who's the poem about?
Precedes the procession of lady and lord
Last in secession an enraged orc horde
Carefully navigating to second then fifth
Looking through roads for most targets to hit
Leading the lost but not the confused
Humor unwelcome, granted a wee bit amused?
First and foremost to be titled "skilled"
But just 1 point for an elephant killed
This puzzle involves wordplay. The context of the lines of the poem verify the answer, but each line (expect for the last one) is used to get the answer.
