Grumpy Bus

Oh the smiles where did they go

I’ve given lots of mine away

I smiled at everyone today

Trying to turn their scowls

Into something much nicer to look at

And what do I get in return

The Grumpy bus

Hoards of people, following the crowd

Unable to turn their downward face

Into something smiling

And how do they feel


And me

I smile, I’m happy

They can keep the grumpy bus

I know it must be expensive

In time and energy

To stay on the grumpy bus

Where as a smile
