The poem Liian Paha Sappi by Aaro Hellaakoski, which tells the tale of a child struggling to keep his temper: A TEMPER TOO BAD How it burns my sisu when I have to be quiet If my will would be fulfilled the undertaker would get grain. A little boy has gotten a temper too bad This sisu cannot be put out by even the most snowy Lapland. This project is unusual in that most of the readers are non-Finnish speakers, and learned the poem phonically.
