Jealousy


Once you are born
your neighbours bless you
their blessing turns into a blemish
as you gradually grow up
a boy with a great promise
a grudge for you what they send,
to them you are not merely a name
your talent fetches you a fame
a good job of yours brings in for them
a poisonous jealousy you hate to mention
diseased minds makes them sick
proud are you with your honest deed
one day would come they like a pig
only to find there your feet to lick.
