WordPress Daily Prompt: Green-eyed Monster

I wasn’t in the mood to write a letter, but I did feel a little poetic, so here’s my response to the “green-eyed monster” challenge:


She has everything I want:
Beauty, money, love, and fame.
And, honestly, she’s such a dunce;
Can’t learn a simple game.

So why should she have all the fun
Of life’s most cherished joys and gifts
While I get stuck with life’s old scraps?
Through left-overs I sift.

If I were her, and she were me,
Life would be good; yes, right as rain,
For I would have what I deserve,
And she’d feel envy’s pain.

Join the fun. Get rules here:
