GREEN WITH ENVY

I met her when I was sixteen or seventeen One old mean vicious queen called Josephine Her skin the texture of a tangerine And its color plasticine aquamarine Obsessed with her aging beauty hardly pristine Deeply tormented by the hope of cure or vaccine I vividly remember the wildest bizarre surreal scene It was in between mid-October and the eve of Halloween When she lined our trampoline with a thick coat of vaseline She made us hop like mexican jumping beans that evil queen There we were me and my friends Maureen Kathleen and Eileen She resented our youth and let us loose in an old pinball machine Sea green with envy screaming out spells of velveteen opaline This was her idea of some weird evergreen rejuvenation machine AP: Honorable Mention 2020 Submitted on March 14, 2019, for contest “GREEN” HUMOR, OLD OR NEW sponsored by CAROLYN DEVONSHIRE - RANKED 4TH
