Dislike of Rails reinforced

All my Rails application does is implement some html pages for managing a rolodex-style application, with storage being through HTTP REST calls to another server. It is about as trivial as you can imagine. Thanks to Rails, my application is a complex beast requiring a dozen or more gems composed of over 4000 files and taking up almost 50 megabytes. If I'd just written the application from scratch, its size would be measured in kilobytes, not megabytes. I believe that as my application grows, it will likely benefit from more of the heft that Rails brings, but still. And in the meantime, a side-effect of all that Rails complexity that is beyond my skills to manage is that I can't get my application deployed. I really don't like frameworks.
