    older than sin, and his beard could grow no whiter. He
    wanted to die.
    The dwarfish natives of the Arctic caverns did not
    speak his language, but conversed in their own, twitter-
    ing tongue, conducted incomprehensible rituals, when
    they were not actually working in their factories.
    Once every year they forced him, sobbing and
    protesting, into Endless Night. During the journey he
    would stand near every child in the world, leave one of
    the dwarves' invisible gifts by its bedside. The children
    slept, frozen into time.
    He envied Prometheus and Loki, Sisyphus and
    Judas. His punishment was harsher.
    Ho.
    Ho.
    Ho.

    Smoke and Mirrors, I believe. I read it for AP Language and Composition a few years ago. Great, great book and highly recommended.
