Twin Greens in a Pod

(Envy and jealousy are twin peas in a pod, constantly at war within the human psych. At times one of the two wins. However, the struggle to control the vile urges of jealousy, and nurture envy's habit to let go while yearning silently, is a man's own battle. No matter who the victor, it only goes on to show that we are only human).

Jade blindfolds his serene perusal

Of worldly fancies floundered about,

Tranquil glitter of emerald gaze flickers

As vines of longing curl in earnest.

A whisper, a prayer

To unleash the uncouth flare

Of green hounds held in control binds,

And let them savour these fading whims,

Let them emulate the lucky man

Who’s clutched at peace far too long.

His twin, in glee, wanders around

Viridian eyes brimming in avarice

For fledging joys his brother abandons.

Mossy palms itch to choke

He who lives with treasures undeserved,

To temper the urge, to swallow the greed

Is agony, a torment unfair.

Letting lose a litany of hymns,

He hopes to slaughter, crush and grind

The one who’s hoarded bliss too long.

A battle of wills begins anew,

Envy living in virtue, longing to endure

The bitter truth of deprivation,

Jealousy in malice, oozing with hate

Anticipates a victory won

In ways nasty as can be.

The voice of reason, envy, pleads

To let go of the addicting trance,

Jealousy combats to win all back

From him who’s relished life too long.
