THE SPRINGTIME GROUCH
Ever heard of the Springtime Grouch? The plague of Seedtime. The witherer of all that grows.
With the personality of stinky socks, he dines on slug curry and maggot rice. His favourite day of the year is Valentine’s Day; he celebrates by sneaking into the local greetings card shop and with a thick marker colours all the ruby-red hearts black. And he doesn’t even stay in the lines.
He’s a wet blanket, a stick-in-the-mud; all parties are pooped when he’s around. With Spring festivals and sunshine, the Grouch doesn’t care if the world is in bloom. His eyes – like two melancholy curled-up woodlice – are one blink away from murder.
The Easter Bunny should be stowed in a pot! The boiling kind.
If you happen to see him poking around your garden with his shovel of bats, don’t for Pete’s sake let him stay… Tell the Springtime Grouch to GO AWAY.
