Why Do I Feel Jealous?


Why do I feel so jealous?
When I think of him and her
We do not have a history
To which I can refer
Maybe it is because he can
Chat women up so quick
While I will make a mess of it
I sound like I am thick
So once again I have lost out
To someone with a silver tongue
And compounded with the fact
I am old and he is young
I will just hide my feelings
As I've done many times before
And smile and maybe wish him well
As he leaves with the girl I adore.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
