Grumpy Gracie

“I’m bored,” said Grumpy Gracie
“There is nothing here to do.”
So her mom said she could watch TV
Or read or book or two.
But Grumpy Gracie shook her head,
Said all the shows were dumb
Her books were all too old or lame
So dull they left her numb

She didn’t like books or songs or shows.
All that Grumpy Gracie liked was saying no.

“I’m tired,” said Grumpy Gracie
“And I’m achey and I’m hot.”
So her dad said she could take a nap
With a fan beside her cot.
But the fan was much too windy
For Grumpy Gracie’s achey head
And her pillow was too lumpy
And the sheets were much too red.

She didn’t like sleep or fans that blow
All that Grumpy Gracie liked was saying no.

“I need food,” said Grumpy Gracie.
“I’m so hungry I could die.”
So they made a grilled cheese sandwich
With a side of homemade fries.
But the cheese was much too melty
And she couldn’t stand the crust
Even when they offered ice cream
She turned away in pure disgust

She didn’t like chocolate or cookie dough
All that Grumpy Gracie liked was saying no.
