Hyacinth

He stole the heart of the Sun
Charmed the western wind
Then on a whim

For by jealousy's might
And the discus's flight

The Green Eye Monster

The green eyed monster is under the bed,
Hopefully it is just in my head!
Now it's in the closet,
Right now I wish it would be struck by a comet.
The green eyed monster is under the bed,
But I know it is just in my head.
