Combining multiple genres: an experiment in the art of storytelling

Once upon a time, there was a happy little elf. He lived at the root of a magic oak tree, deep in the forest. He had lots of friends, including Skippy the Squirrel, Barney the Bear and DeeDee the Deer. One afternoon, as he and DeeDee were sitting on the green grass by his house, he said: (1)

yo check this, bitch, i'm supafly
the baddest gangsta in the whole forest wide
from left to right, you ain't ever gonna find
a meaner crackhead G, uh, yeah, that's me.
" (2)

Now as they sat by the big tree
she said: "I have a message for thee
pull up your pants
you're sitting in ants
and G, you ain't no MC.
" (3)

A sudden cry rings
The elf pulled up his pants fast
He itched soon after (4)

"Knock knock."

"Who's there?"

"The elf."

"The elf who?"

"The elf who's gonna blast you for dissing my rhymes, nigga!" (5)

(1 - fairy tale; 2 - rap; 3 - limerick; 4 - haiku; 5 - knock knock joke)
