Curmudgeon's Dudgeon

When something is happening
That I just really don’t like-
I can get downright mean;
Won’t give in, without a fight
Heels dug in, I must look like
The woman in The Scream?

I complain, make a face
Rattle my chains about-
I’m damned if I’ll do it;
Stomp my feet, and pout
Ill winds blowing my way
Makes me want to shout.

It almost eats me alive
Meekness not my bag-
To hurt someone most bludgeonly;
The responsible one, I’d frag
Despite piss-and-moan pity club
At last give in- but Grudgingly.
