Enough Awready…

Curmudgeons & Grouches

Cuddle your cut-offs,
Snuggle your slippers.
If they don’t bring joy
It’s time to ditch ’em.

Bypass the donuts,
Say no to all bread,
Glutens verboten,
Inhale kale instead.

Look on the bright side,
Exist in the now.
Always be grateful,
They’ll all tell you how.

But…

Where are the grouches,
Where the curmudgeons,
People like me who
Live in high dudgeon.

We like our messes,
Our stomachs are fine.
So shove your good cheer
Where the sun doesn’t shine.
