the envious, 1/2


The neighbour’s car is much powerful
His ‘beautiful’ wife looks way graceful
By (tags & labels) he seems so potent
His big house is dressed in fresh paint

[Then & when] you see his workmates
You ask: “how much does he get paid”
You desire his receptionist & secretary
But UR bank account is minus no vary

– At lunch time: “fast food” you are fed
For the syrup & crumbs off their bread
While imagining the five star restaurant
…Where… the others are at this instant

Envious is a devious unheard statement
Others belongings are (your) enjoyment
“You turn your mere wishes in to needs”
But the fruits still only giving you seeds
