A Word about Curmudgeons

Someone just told me that today (January 29) is National Curmudgeon Day. In honor of this day, I am posting a poem I wrote years ago, inspired by a true curmudgeon within my circle:

On Crabgrass and Curmudgeons

I don't like it
That there is crabgrass in my yard.
I hate that it creeps across the walkway
No matter how often I clear it away.
Yet I must admit
That except for the crabgrass,
Some parts of the lawn
Would never be green.
