Grumpus Rumpus | A Poem by Daniel Klawitter

When children miss their breakfast-
They can get a little grumpy.
Their brains slow down, their lips they frown-
Their mood is rather dumpy.

Their tempers flare, their eyes they stare-
They cry and brood and pout.
With no food inside their tummies-
They become a bunch of louts.

So don’t forget your breakfast
In the morning when you wake!
Or you’ll be a Grumpus Rumpus-
And that’s more than I can take.
