Rudolph, the Emacs Hacker

Rudolph, the Emacs Hacker
Wrote alot of e-LISP code
And if you ever ran it
It would lighten up your load
All of the other hackers
Used to call his programs names
They never let poor Rudolph
Play any computer games

When, one night, a process crashed
Someone went to say
"Rudolph, with your cuspy hacks,
Can you get my edits back?"

Then all the hackers loved him
And they shouted out with glee
"Rudolph, the Emacs Hacker --
You'll go down in wizardry!"
