Once upon a time, there was an angry little elf.
who thought of absolutely no one, but of only himself.
He’s always so mad, which made the other elves very sad,
with his complaints that work, work, work, was all they ever had.
Even his friends would call him mean and selfish.
“Why are you not nice? Why are you not elfish?”
No matter what they say, he swore he’d never listen,
because ending the holidays had become his evil elf mission.

We kill all the caterpillars, then complain there are no butterflies. – John Marsden
