In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Green-Eyed Monster.”
My commitment to “The Daily Post” prevents me from omitting this particular one. Jealousy was a daily post just a few days ago….aside from this…
I feel satisfied with who and what I am and do not compare myself to others. Therefore I will take this opportunity to write an ode to a little green eyed friend that I am presently sharing my facility with.
Welcome little buddy with your green and shiny skin.
It’s good to know your with me and that we are so akin
I see you like the pool no less than I
For it’s by it’s side that I can hear your loud and lengthy cry
Your company is my pleasure, I have grown so very fond
of your nightly appearance, and that includes your song.
Frogs have always been a favorite; I love the way you hop,
but sad I’ll be the day you leap and I should hear a plop.
For I will know that in the pool is where you made your stop
Continue with our rendez vous, to this I make a pledge
If only you would promise me to stay upon the ledge.
