“For today’s prompt, write a jealous poem. Maybe you’re jealous. Or maybe someone else is jealous of you–or someone else. Whether envious of another or suspicious of a partner, dive deep into this emotion today.”
There once was a girl from Kilkenny
Who could not control green-eyed envy
Of other girl’s boyfriends
she spoke words to offend
Her bold vitriol turned friends cold; now she hasn’t any.
