Valsa George


Twin Triplets.No.15


SUSPICION

A centipede, surreptitiously crawling
With a hundred legs, listlessly crawling….crawling
Until from a covert hide out, it suddenly stings


JEALOUSY

If you rail relentless
Seeing others thrive prosperous
It is jealousy, doubtless!

    Just like the centipede stings so does jealousy. They both have a
    lot in common with each other. A sting will soon disappear if it is
    not poisoned. Jealousy will hurt and can eventually cripple the person
    to whom it is directed toward if they allow it. Looks can be deceiving
    Madam Valsa. Love this one. (Report) Reply

    Terrific and especially the precise language and accuracy of the second verse, brilliant economical language.

    But we can`t often escape from these.... I have suspected people and things and have once or twice felt jealous of things silly indeed. Thank you Madam Valsa for sharing these triplets. (Report) Reply
