Do you Remember the Once-ler?Far outside of town where the grass had begun to grow and where the wind no longer smelt sour when it blew lived a man, a man named the Once-ler.Do you Remember the Once-ler?4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes
The Once-ler, now an old man, lay in bed alone with his thoughts. His mind cluttered with the fog of his past. The loss chances and regrets were piled high atop shoulders, like the weight of the world. For you see, it was his fault for the loss of Truffula trees Oh, that Thneed, that Thneed, that something that everyone someone should need, had indeed cost him everything he once held dear. Greed became a part of him, had changed him and had given him a thirst, one that could never be quenched or could never be satisfied. By the time he realized what Greed had done to him, it was too already late. The trees and creatures were gone and left behind was the source of their despair. Although, the he did have a hand in the destruction of those precious Truffula tress and the lifting of the Lorax, he was offered the chan

Wake up in the morning feeling like Once-ler
Put my hat on, I'm out the door - I'm gonna hit this forest
Before I leave, brush my teeth with the lo-ra-ax
Cause when I leave for the mornin', I'm certainly coming back
I'm talking - cutting down truffula trees, trees
Trying on all our thneeds, thneeds
Parents blowing up our busi-ness
collecting all of our mon-ey
Pulling up to the parties
Trying to get a little greed-y
Don't stop, make it snap
Lorax, is givin' me some crap
Tonight, I'mma chop
'Til we see the corn-op
Tick tock, on the clock
But the machines don't stop no
Woah-oh oh oh
Woah-oh oh oh
Ain't got a care in world, but got plenty of marshmallows
Ain't got no seeds in my pocket, but I'm already rich!
Now, the people are lining up cause they hear we got thneeds
But we don't give em' what they need unless they look like ------
I'm talking about - everybody getting fanc-y
People trying to steal my seeds, seeds
Gonna smack them if they don't have thneeds, t
Once-Ler: Prince of ThneedsHere he is in all his gloryOnce-Ler: Prince of Thneeds4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word
Styling a green suit of money
Wearing his styling shades
As he held a double-edge red guitar
His company is booming
But the forest is dying
Truffela trees fall
As the tufts are harvested
He's consumed by greed
Making a profit is in his mind
Being at the top of the world
He's got everything he needs
He's the Prince of Thneeds
The maker of his creation
Started as an impossible dream
Has now became reality
But at what cost
Valley is decayed
He lost his friends
Family has abandoned him
All he has left is his old factory
The green suit that he wore
The first thneed around his neck
He was all alone with nothing left

The Once-ler whistled, flipping yet another pancake onto the plate that Tiny was holding. The Once-ler had been living here for a few years now; when his thneeds didn’t sell he decided to stay here instead of going back to his family.
He had friends here; the fish, the bears, the Lorax, and, of course, you.
Except that you weren’t really a friend, you were more of a girlfriend.
You had met in town where he had been trying to sell his thneed, and while you weren’t interested in buying it, you were interested in him.
He was adorable, with his slightly shaggy dark brown hair, and those bright blue eyes, and his slightly round cheeks.
Add in the fedora and his enthusiasm, and he was just way too cute for you.
You got to know him in the following months, hanging around at his house tent and sometimes inviting him over to your house as well.
It was fun getting to know him, he was kind and sweet and smart, everything you wanted in a guy.
Not long after that you two st
