Envy

Rating: 5.0
Once upon a time on a warm sunny day
The snake has been chasing the butterfly,
Trying to catch her on its flying way.
The color of sunshine on the wings of flight,
The beauty met with the horror and fright.
The fear of being swallowed
Gave the butterfly strength.
It seemed she could overcome any length.
She flew further and further away,
Saving her life on a warm sunny day.
The snake didn't get tired at all,
He chased the butterfly which was small.
He went on crawling on the heels,
Concealing his horrible ideals.
Being exhausted on the third day
The butterfly sat down on a flower,
Breaking out of the last power,
She had to surrender and said:
"Before you kill me I'd like to know -
What do you want by this to show?
Are butterflies your food or …
Maybe you are just in a bad mood?
Have I done anything wrong?
You've been chasing me for so long!
Tell me why you want me to die? "
The answer was very short:
I hate you a lot!
Can't stand watching you fly.
So, you'll better die.
Moral: Apart of the other things,
envy a poison to the heart brings.
