Saturday Poem and Gratitude List
Jalál (Glory), 12 Rahmat (Mercy) 176 B.E. - Saturday, July 6, 2019

My Grandfather's Word1

My Grandfather
had a word for it,
for the bitching,
the complaining,
and the grumbling under your breath.

It was mulligrubbing,
it wasn't ladylike,
it wasn't gentleman-like,
it was worrying aloud
and being rude
to disturb others
with your gripping.
