JERKS OF JEALOUSY Two thick n' lovely friends, friends forever type Ugly poverty had its brutal curse on both of them Thick n' thin of life, equally did they share... Both good at sports, budding athletes of their locality New contest announced, In prize-trophy, sports shoe ! Both took up challenge, preparation on in full-swing... Motivation n' moral boost-up, coach and the trainee, both were for both! Arrived the D- day - One lost , One won!! This is the point where story takes a U-turn.. One who lost got jealous, best moments till date dissolved and diluted. Wicked jealousy corroded his mind like sulphuric acid... In fit of jealousy burnt he the shoes won by his own dear friend... Another contest declared in neighbouring town, winner friend said, I won't partake due to ligament tear.. but buddy you have to win this time The new shoes I won, you wear and keep it as my gift all yours! Good luck my friend he patted and left, still unaware about shoes' fate which he had kept safe in chest. © Anulaxmi Nayak, 2015
