ENVY


I heard a devil laugh out loud
When his sword cut a cord
Cord of friendship, peace and joy
Envy devil’s gift for a happy crowd

Envy thy friend’s life and health
Envy his money and wealth
He did enjoy when you fought
Swears and curses left your breath

Envy for the pleasures of life
Envy thy neighbor’s wife
He did play; with your minds
Smiles from your face he did wipe

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
