Grumpy Green Elf

His problem.


He lived all alone, the little green elf,
In his home in the roots of a tree.
His only thought was to please himself.
He was selfish and mean as could be.

He scowled and he frowned from morning till night.
Not a friend did he have to his name.
Squirrels ran away and owls took flight.
And who do you think was to blame?

He said that a fairy had wished him bad luck
To follow him all of his days.
So it wasn't his fault he was such an "odd duck"
And he never tried changing his ways.
