Grump: Master, is that all there is?

A nutcase, before this poem you were!
An apotheosis, you have not been!
A skinflint, you are!
A complaint, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
To grump I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like mope
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using misanthrope

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.
