New Thoughts On Words
C is for Curmudgeon
Cranky, cross, and Cantankerous
It’s someone else’s fault
Is being a Curmudgeon a choice, or about loss?
Crappy, critical and uncompromising
Like a Republican who is sore
Callous, cautious, careful
A Curmudgeon ruminates the same thought
Perhaps their hippocampus is shrinking, their dreams forgotten, or tossed
Left alone to commiserate
A connoisseur without a cause
Realizes a critical point
Dick Chaney could be their new boss
A special thanks to my friend Mary for suggesting the word Curmudgeon and to Michael Ray King for encouraging writers to write poetry.
