GRUNDO INDEPENDENCE DAY SPECIAL

Grundo Independence Appreciation
by Freya_marie

Those simple fellows, that happy bunch,
All of whom we've come to love,
Come celebrate Grundo Independence Day
And the escape from that nasty Sloth!

With their strange affinity for orange
And their preclusion for technology, too,
It's impossible for fellow Neopians
Not to love them through and through.

Though not originally from Neopia,
Grundos fit in here quite well,
We've adopted plenty of Sloth's servants and 
they're grateful as far as we can tell.

As for famous Grundos -- well, there's many!
Zygorax the fearless maintenence man
Halts evil fuzzles in their tracks, AND
works waste disposal. Now are you a fan?

Grundo Chef Gargarox masters true artistry,
Crafting modern delights for the palate
(Though sometimes not so delightful);
At least he'll never serve you a plain salad.

Now in lands far and wide, Grundos left
Their humble beginnings behind to become
Skilled at many things (like Yooyuball).
One thing is clear from this terrible rhyme: Celebrate Grundos, 
Independence has only just begun!

Savoury Grundo Veggieballs
by Indulgences

I love these Grundo veggieballs,
They're made from wholesome stuff.
I eat them by the plateful and
I just can't get enough!

A lot of dishes on this site
Are made from Neopets.
They horrify me, shock me, too.
They fill me with regret!

I'm not a vegetarian
By any means at all,
Yet when the foods are Neopets,
I want to cry and bawl!

The veggieballs are made of wheat,
Of vegetables and oats.
They're cruelty-free, which I do love,
So cram them down your throats!

I love these Grundo veggieballs,
They're savoury and sweet.
They simply melt inside your mouth
And don't have any meat!

Booktastic Bookworm
by Ragecandybar

Wide eyes blink on moonscape bare,
Upon his head sprouts an antenna pair.
He makes his home in craters deep
By his side, a booktastic heap. 

He reads all night under starlight dim,
The award he yearns for, but chances are slim.
The last page turns, then a small smoky haze;
The next book is opened, the "Kreludan Way."
	
This little Grundo with daydreams sky high
Reads every word with eyes tired and dry.
There are some titles he hasn’t found as of yet,
Like "Beam Me Aboard" and "Robot Petpet."

The Booktastic Award List still turns him down
But one day he knows 
His name will be crowned. 
It’s time for more books 
So he waits by the shops
He stays there all day and restocks nonstop.

He has a new book, 
Let’s see what he’s bought; 
A rare one, indeed, 
"How Purples Got Their Spots!"
The young little Grundo is proud of his find...
But he sold it instead! Is he out of his mind?

Turns out he’s more 
Than just the bookworm sort,
He also buys items and sells them for sport.
He is quite a smart Grundo, seen either way,
And now he has money for fun on Grundo Day!

Freaky Factory: The Purple Grundo
by Yarslov

Can you spy the purple Grundo
Among the tubs and wires?
You must have a quick eye,
For stealing is what he desires.

All your hard work
To make plushies from blobs of Kreludite,
Will dwindle away.
If you don't shoo that Grundo
They might cut your pay.

He is sneaky,
He is fast,
But don't let him have a free pass.
You can rid of him by 
Dropping Kreludite on him,
Or by bonking him on the head.

How ever you do it,
You need to do it fast,
For the whistle will blow
And the time is up.
Did you keep your plushies,
Or was his luck on the up?

Independence
by Diadems

Once upon a time,
From a place very far,
Lived the lovable Grundos
Who could not be who they are.

Sloth was in power,
Enslaved, mutated, and bullied,
He just wanted his minions
To fulfill his greed.

Their need? To be adopted for freedom,
Claimed the imprisoned Space Faerie.
To get out of Sloth's grasp,
As she stated in her plea.

Then, one day, she had escaped,
Saving the world of Neopia and space,
The Grundos were pleased 
That Sloth was blasted without a trace.

Finally the Grundos were set free,
It seemed like, in such an instance,
Thanks to the Space Faerie and Neopians,
We recall this day to be 
The Grundo Independence.

For Freedom And Grundos
by Kitteh_love_forever

What an odd little creature,
An utterly peculiar curiosity,
Smooth-skinned and two-toed...
What in Neopia is this monstrosity?

Their eyes have no pupils!
And what IS that on their heads?
Their names have too many x's and z's --
They certainly aren't your ordinary bipeds!

They're dimwitted, awkward, and slow,
Overly trusting and always aiming to please,
You may be wondering, and rightly so,
Wherein lies this creature's expertise?

Well, they're diligent and loyal,
And always ready to lend a helping hand,
They're the friendliest 'pet you'll ever meet,
But they aren't afraid to take a stand!

On this day, many years ago,
The creature made its name one we know.
Freed from slavery and tireless work,
They banded together as one -- the Grundo.

So, paint your flags orange 
And play some Gormball,
And next time you see a Grundo, 
Stop him and say,
"Hey, I'm sorry you guys 
Had such a rough time.
I just wanna wish you 
Happy Grundo Independence Day!"

Grundo, Shmundo
by Lilyallen55

Grundo Day comes once again,
"What an awful day!" said furry friends,
Shoyrus tend to roll their eyes,
Rudeness is their best disguise.

"Grundos aren't like the rest of us!"
They call out in the lands.
"They just don't fit in with the group!"
Pointing at them with their hands.

But why don't they like the Grundos? 
They're so unique and cool! 
In order to adopt one, 
There is a special rule.

You can only find them in one place,
The Space Station in the sky!
There are so many options
Grundos are super, super fly!

So, envy is the reason 
They don't like the Grundos much,
But that doesn't really matter, 
Because we like them a bunch!

What's Good About A Grundo?
by Pifflish

What's good about a Grundo?
They cry at night and drool,
And while they are not very smart
They're eager to seem "cool."

What's good about a Grundo?
If you want one, wait in line,
Space adoption is your only option
(And that's if you can read the sign).

What's good about a Grundo?
Though they try not to seem rude,
They can't quite hide the simple fact
They want rare, choice Space Food.

What's good about a Grundo?
Well, I guess they're kind of cute,
And that they're loyal to the end,
No person could dispute.

What's good about a Grundo?
They are trustworthy and kind,
And even if you're feeling cross,
The Grundos never mind.

What's BAD about a Grundo?
With all the love and joy they bring,
I guess it's only natural
That I can't think of a thing!

The Grundo Cleaner
by Tryan15

A lonely Grundo trudges to a seat,
Sighing, groaning, and tired.
He clasps a mop and broom in hand,
Weary from the day's events 
That had transpired.

He stares out of the Space Station
And looks down at the land below.
Neopia, or so it is called,
Full of earth and white snow.

He wants to go and explore the world,
Yet, sadly, is stuck in the station.
He longs for a visit to the lands,
It would be a nice long vacation.

Every day is like a chore,
Mopping areas and sweeping floors.
A measly pay he gets,
Yet he does not ask for more.

He knows that, if he quits,
Nobody will take the job though there is pay,
Leaving nobody to clean up the mess
That plagues the station everyday.

He cleans the Space Station
Everyday without fail,
Clearing up wasted food
With his trusty mop and pail.

The words "Food fight!" frighten him;
The mess after that is just too much.
And though he wants to quit,
He has no choice as such.

So please, next time, do your part!
Bin your uneaten food and stuff,
And keep the area nice and tidy.
Don't make his job even more tough!

From Baby To Elderly (A Grundo's Transformation)
by Comawhite333

My little baby Grundo
Had been acting so strange,
I was unsure what had happened,
It was an overnight change.

When I first noticed the difference,
I had picked him up
While walking through the mall.
"Put me down!" he exclaimed.
"I know how to crawl!"

When I attempted to feed him
He threw such a fit,
He yelled, "I can feed myself, 
Now would you please quit?!?"

Later that night I tried to bathe him,
Bringing him his favorite rubber duck,
When I stepped through the bathroom door
He muttered, "Just my luck."

What is the matter with you?
Are you unhappy with me?

"Yes!" he replied.
"You treat me like a baby.

In Neopet time, 
I am older than you!
I shouldn't be like this,
All small and blue.

Now, get out of my bathroom
And out of my sight!
And no more baby kisses
on my cheek at night!"

I was upset by his admission,
But I knew what to do,
And I'm so happy I did.
My little baby Grundo
Is no longer a kid.

I do miss the way things were,
Before he grew old,
But I gained a best friend,
A gift greater than gold.
