He's A Big Big Gripe

He complains if

The weather is hot

He hates the chills

On a cold winter night.

He doesn't enjoy sounds

Happy children make at play

He gripes at night

Trying to pick a fight.

He quarrels with his wife

For no reason at all

He won't speak to his neighbor

And never has a smile for me or you.

He doesn't like animals

Of any shape or form

He can't understand

Why liking him is very hard to do.

He doesn't realize it


He's big big gripe!
