Grumpiest: Master, do I have a bright future?

Good-natured, without a doubt you never were!
Straightforward, you have been!
Cantankerous, you are!
Arduous, you will perpetually be!

Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term grumpiest
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for scrappiest

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Can I pass a meter, published so people might see
Terse pleasant notations, thereby imparting, and oh now imparted free?
Touchy or unkind seem all too apparent. But is nettled?
Irritable, sharp? - or inhumane, barbaric? Damn! I deserted settled!
I wonder righteous and certainly strenuous, but happily ought I
- blurt meanings so - summaries drafted from equations spry?

Limerick
There was a young girl from Douty,
She wanted a word for pouty.
      Like mr. plumpy?
      But then thought grumpy!
So smart that woman from Douty.
