So, what is envy?
Is it the child of hatred,
or simply nothing?

    Excellent Herbert! I have no idea what you're talking about but it sounds brilliant! (Just joking, honest) .

    Seriously though, apart from the typo (please amend imediately) , This would be a perfect haiku if it had 17 syllables instead of 18 and if it was 1st line 5 syllables,2nd line 7 syllables and 3rd line 5 syllables. Then it would be perfect.

    Yours always
    Gypsy
