GRUNDO DAY SPECIAL
We Declare Independance!
In the course of our fair nation
Of Grundos true and brave
We find will enough to rebel
Against the one who enslaves
For we deem it in our right
As natural laws assert
Our freedom to autonomy
And avengement of all hurt
Every Grundo, it is evident
Is born equal and is free
To pursue life and happiness
And to exercise liberty
When the powers that rule
Are corrupt and deemed unfit
A right to change or denounce them
But never to acquit
The charges against our leader
Seemingly have no end
Enslavement, brutal treatment
A sense of fashion to offend
His rule has been tyranny
And justice not sustained
And so, for all these reasons
We will be free of your domain
Oh Sloth, how you have fallen
How low have you been brought
Your reign has reached its ending
And nevermore shall we support
Your cause is merely ego
Your selfishness led astray
Your armies have deserted you
For our Independence Day
The Grundo Warehouse
Treasure trove hidden inside,
Wondering what jewels lay inside.
Presents and gifts, of different kind,
Delving down deep to see what you find.
Old and broken, scattered around,
Junk amongst good in one big mound.
Stacks of items, forever growing,
What you will grab, never knowing.
Enter a code and wait for your prize,
While the blue Grundo starts to decide.
Worthless or priceless, common or rare,
Useless or handy, or something to wear.
Wooden boxes all piled on top,
Crates upon crates, it never stops.
What will you win, on this day,
Your turn is next, please come this way!
Grundo Chef's Delicacies
There's gargapple, roasted to perfection,
Cherries Jubalee and Iceberg Sundae.
Cosmic Broccoli - smells delicious!
Blueberry Gateaux and pills of Green Tea.
What's that, Deep-Fried Space Rocks?
Among my favourites. And Beef Rouladen;
although they might not look like the
originals, they're delicious all the same.
Okay, I can see how you're suspicious.
But have you seen the Grundo Chef, my friend?
How could you doubt with his determination
he'd make you a delicious meal in the end?
Sure, you might have to travel to the
Space Station to track down this Chef,
but if you are willing to make the journey
you're sure to have a treat served up.
Grobleen Fruit Punch, the list goes on.
Sloth Surprise, Rocket Corn on the Cob.
Intergalactic Spiced Beans, and finally
everyone's favourite: Impermeable Cheese Log.
There's a never-ending supply of dishes
as long as you are not faint of heart,
and your stomach can hold up to it all,
what are you waiting for... let's start!
Make your way to Virtupets,
make a weekend out of it if you'd like.
But be sure to stop
by Grundos cafe and try out some foods.
For today is Grundo Day,
and Grundos Cafe is tops!
The Grundo Leader Attacks!
The Grundo Leader
Garb is his name
He likes to grab things
Even though he's too big
To get far on those wings
What kind of thief,
Would want to be pink?
The Grundo Leader, of course!
At least we know his name!
An item gone in the blink of an eye
Can only mean you've ran into the guy
Look for the event at the top of your screen
Who'd have guessed he could be so mean?
Or he could be nice, no not one person knows
Where his next stop is
Or where he goes
One thing is for sure, though...
I have no choice but to let him go
If he came from space
Then how can I follow?
This sliver of sadness is hard to swallow
This misery, oh my!
An item stolen is an item lost
I would have placed it away
Had I known the cost
Now he's gone, vanished
Like a leaf in the wind
My sorrow unquenched, a thirst for revenge
One day he'll be sorry if I see him again!
How long has been since
Last we stood side by side
Fighting the good fight
I still recall how sure I
Was that you would always
Be there, at my back,
Even now as the ship crumbles
Around us and the clang and
Shriek of steel rattles my mind
Parlax, who are you? Traitor?
Pawn? Perhaps you are yet
My friend somewhere deep
In your heart.
I wish I could see it, but now
All there remains is the anger,
As if you feel the same. As if I
We come from an abused and
Beleaguered race, you and I.
I wonder if Grundos will ever
Truly be free.
We are strong, but how can we take
Our freedom if there remain still
Those among us who will side with
If only there was time to make
You see, but I must help Cylara
And when I turn you have fled
Like a coward.
Perhaps the only thing left is to
Accept the past and embrace the
Future. In my heart I accept this last
Turning to follow my new friend,
I spare one last look to the way you fled.
Goodbye, Parlax. The time has come
To let you go.
The Island Grundo
The island Grundo wears a mask
Of wood that's lacquered white.
It's carved with tribal images.
It is an awesome sight!
A skirt of grass adorns its waist,
And wrists are graced by straw.
Its arms are bare and tan in hue,
Held high in a hurrah!
Beneath the mask, the Grundo wears
A smile from ear to ear.
Its island temperament ensures
It's always full of cheer!
The island Grundo's marvelous,
Nobody can deny!
It's lovely, perfect, wonderful.
It's gorgeous to the eye!
Guzzling Grundos House Special
Should you wary from a flight,
In deepest space alight.
You’ll find your tummy starts to roar,
When Grundos is in sight.
A merry space port café there,
That serves a hearty dish.
You’ll find a feed and friends to see,
If that is what you wish!
One thing you’ll note as you sit down,
As stated on each wall.
The house special does get a rave,
“The best!” reads menu scrawl.
You order fast, this food sounds good!
You sit back, chat, and wait.
Who knows what goes in Grundo’s best?
With such reviews? Sounds great!
Then meal arrives, you stop and blink,
With fork you slowly poke.
Should you have ordered something plain?
Regret now that you spoke?
Before you sits a glob of goo,
Pale hue with shimmered sheen.
A lump of blue doth bulge straight out,
The rest? A pallid green.
You stare now at the meal you have,
(But now, does it stare too?)
Paid your fee, now dare you eat?
One bite, all up to you!
Soon you find your plate is clean,
You order meals galore!
For once you taste this Grundo treat,
You’ll come back soon for more.
Eight arms hold so carefully the web spun
The silk tapestry hung out of the light
In the center waits the dangerous one
His fangs dripping with desire to bite
Red eyes that glow fiercely peer through the dark
Awaiting some foolish adventurer
Who chose to on a cave mission embark
Believing him a mere conjecturer
It was not his choice to be so monstrous
For this harsh fate he did not volunteer
His future could have been oh so lustrous
Yet he fell to servitude, flaw, and fear
His mind sometimes shifts to that horrid day
Sloth's order so quick and no time to hide
He fought and wrestled but had to obey
With a Grundo Warrior on either side
"Soon Neopia will be mine!" Sloth cried
Unstoppable Arachnomorph power
But success to the Doctor was denied
A faulty potion he did devour
So with his mind under his own control
He disappeared into the wilderness
To find him you must pay a hefty toll
His great hunger outweighs any loneliness
Tourists crazed or without any fear
His greeting a vacation would scupper
Out from the dark a voice chillingly clear
Come right in you're just in time for supper
My Favorite Grundo Things
It’s Grundo Independence Day,
What joy and fun this day brings!
In honor of this special time,
Let me list my favorite Grundo things:
First is the I Club Sloth Grundo T-Shirt
A witty way to mock the dictator!
Wear it with pride, nice and green;
Tell slavery you will see him later!
Next is a very charming piece
The sunny Gardening Grundo Gnome
With bright red eyes and a giant smile
He will surely brighten any Neohome!
From Fyora’s Tower comes item three
A powerful weapon for battling
Multiple use, and difficult to block,
The Rainbow Clockwork Grundo is astounding!
If you like cute things, and who doesn’t?
Check out the Baby Grundo Plushie
Soft and squishy, he will melt your heart
Everyone in Neopia will surely agree!
Fifth is a book that is considered a classic
Definitely a must in every kitchen shelf;
It’s none other than
The book Grundo Café Recipes,
Written by the Grundo Lunch Lady herself!
Finally, if you want to throw the best ever,
Whether in Kreludor or the depths of Kiko Lake,
Don’t forget to have a Grundo Piñata,
It's the only piñata that is stuffed with cake!
Those six are my favorite Grundo things
Some are rare and some are common...
Like my mallow Grundo, they make me smile,
And that is worth more than any fortune!
Way past all the clouds,
Way up high in space.
There's an interesting shop,
It's an... odd little place.
Run by Gargarox Isfuhblarg,
(Or however it is you say it.)
He makes... er, food for Virtupets
Never a recipe has he omit.
In fact, he makes new ones,
And improves upon the old.
Because how can you go wrong with a
Cratered Pastry, served ice-cold?
He's invented quite adventurous dishes
Only for the most daring Neopets about.
Space Fungused Cheese and Roast Gargapple,
Served with a side of pickled Snorkle Snout.
And what about Beekle Burgers?
Oh! What a culinary delight!
And Deep-Fried Space Rocks tickle my taste buds,
When they're served and cooked just right.
I also love to add a dash of Space Spice,
To give a zing to my Vegetable Deluxe.
And then, for dessert, I usually have
A delicious Grobleen Fruit Punch.
I guess you can say I'm a fanatic
For the delights made by this Grundo,
But really, who honestly doesn't love
An extra large serving of Blueberry Gateaux?
So next time you're visiting Virtupets
Eating boring old Vegetable Stew,
Try something sweet from Grundo's Cafe.
Don't be shy, just do it, I dare you!
I once was a soldier for Sloth
It was better than washing dishes
But being a soldier for Sloth
Was one of those dim-witted wishes
I thought that the travel was fun
There wasn't much else fun about it
I wanted to just be SOMEONE
The end of each day made me doubt it
If anything's true as the moon
You can't quit in Doctor's Sloth's forces
So I found a desert sand dune
And hid out with some local sources
If you asked me to say just when
I decided that life should be wet
The desert will do that my friend
A decision I'll never regret
A Grundo in Sahkmet, that's me
Now a free Neopet to the core
No Battledome glory you see
Can compare to a great Tug-O-War
Grundo Day Ode to the Grundo Thief
Stealthy and sneaky
Without making noise
The Grundo Thief
Wants to steal all the toys.
As you’re hard at work
Mixing yellow, red, and blue
He’s sneaking quietly
To steal each toy from you.
Do you want the avatar,
Did you need that score?
Then you’ll just have to try
Again a time... or four.
For the Grundo Thief
Is as wise as he is scary
And he’ll wait until
You’re no longer wary!
We fear the Grundo Thief
Is quite a bit smarter,
So to get that avatar,
You simply have to work harder!
Undead Grundo Shopkeeper
In the forbidden accursed city,
an Undead Grundo Shopkeeper
does merchanting no more,
that vile mutated creature.
Rotten gross food to lure
travelers on the brink of despair,
in one fell swoop,
his visitors are gone in a flare.
Blank-eyed and restless,
his spirit eternally haunts
anyone who dare come
to the ruined city with wants.
Staring into the misty fog,
he sees a wandering explorer
but soon, very soon,
the city will be filled with horror.
Grundo at the Rainbow Fountain
Purple or orange, which do you choose?
The Grundos of Kreludor find it urgent
But there are so many alternate hues
Why not follow something divergent?
Mallow is what first comes to mind
A Grundo so white, puffy, and sweet!
Of course, no arms and legs is unkind
But the cuteness factor cannot be beat!
Maraquan would grant you the power to swim
And faerie, the coveted chance to fly!
These athletes are so elegant and trim
In the deep water or the soaring sky!
There's always zombie, so sallow and pale
Those leaden white eyes, and rotting clothes
Perhaps a bit scary, since this would entail
That Grundo learning to decompose.
How about 8-Bit? So retro, but new!
To be two-dimensional, lose resolution –
It might be a difficult choice to undo
A Grundo in reverse evolution.
Grundo, do you see? There are so many more
Colors and lifestyles available to you!
Not just purple and orange like on Kreludor
But a rainbow of options for you to review.
The Grundo Leader Attacks!
The Grundo Leader attacks!
He steals your Blue Grundo Plush,
And as quickly as he arrives,
He leaves again with a whoosh!
Why did he do that? What does he want?
With a plushie so small and so blue?
The answer is really quite a surprise,
What do you think he’ll do?
He’ll take it to Faerieland to sit with his friend,
A discarded magical guy,
Who is lonely all day with nothing to do,
Except sit by himself and sigh.
Together they’ll have the greatest of times,
With sandwiches, small cakes, and tea,
To Grundo plushies and the Leader himself,
Oh, how I wish that they’d invite me!
So if the Grundo Leader attacks you,
And you want your beloved toy back,
Try visiting Faerieland, he might be there,
With a picnic set out on a mat.
He acts like he’s all big and scary,
But really he’s made of pure win!
He loves to spend time helping Grundos
Who aren’t quite as lucky as him.
