From an Elf

A Poem By paperpoet // 12/20/2010

 

I’m an elf with pointy ears
Santa’s not my boss
I live with fairies in the wood
Not in the Pole with Claus
I don’t make toys for greedy kids
Instead, I’ll craft a shoe
I don't just wear red and green
My favorite color's blue
You may have been misinformed
About those of my kind
People get some strange ideas
Put into their minds
Christmas is the time of year
When we get the most attention
But it's for those silly falasies
I haven't failed to mention
So next time that you hear about
"Santa's little helpers"
You can help to put an end
To all those crazy rumors
Maybe one day your race and mine
Will peacefully co-exist
And people everywhere will realize that
Unlike Santa, Elves exist

:D

I smiled at the end...these are my favorite lines: 

Maybe one day your race and mine
Will peacefully co-exist
And people everywhere will realize that
Unlike Santa, Elves exist

I love your poetry

everything was better when/you would call and I'd be like/yeah babe, no way

I must say

Santa is not an elven slave driver

I like this--it's cute.

I like this--it's cute. Rather too optimistic, though, perhaps, because real elves couldn't possibly coexist with humans--they're much too fond of tormenting them.

My dear, this is a wonderful poem! Your rythym is catchy, and I love the last lines especially. My house brownie scoffed at the idea of elves living peacefully alongside humans--he says that humans are too clumsy and elves lose their patience too quickly with humans' "bumbling, bungling ways". Then he tried to stalk away and knocked over a plate of Christmas cookies.

Anyway, loved the poem--write more soon!

"I don’t make toys for greedy kids
Instead, I’ll craft a shoe
I don't just wear red and green
My favorite color's blue"
