The Green-eyed Monster

The green-eyed monster has just peeped His eyes around that corner The look he gave so dark and deep As if he meant to warn her That some things are best left unsaid That some are best left put to bed. To visit once or twice maybe? No harm in that she could not see But harm once done to jealous eyes Will creep and creep and demonise. As if it were a godly thing? Crowned and glorious? A new sweet foundling? But no The green-eyed monster has just peeped His eyes around that corner.
