Grump

I have a cudgel.
Be ye warned!
With whoop and grump
It is adorned.
When comes the moment
That I'm scorned.
I'll swing said cudgel
Be ye warned.
Curmudgeon I
Am wont to be
And find my best
Felicity
When left to ponder
Quietly.
So leave me please
I beg of thee.

--------------------------------------------------------------
I'm not really this misanthropic, but I do like to cultivate a bit of curmudgeonliness.  I want to be that old guy on the porch who shakes his cane at the kids and then laughs when they're not looking because I'm glad they're there.

I would like to cross stitch this and hang it on my office door as a warning.

Sam, thanks.

Ellecee, that sounds like a great idea!
