Green & Red- The Flower Garden Is Dead

Jealousy buys the 'green-eyed monster' nothing
Left empty like an orphan of it's warm womb
Forever searching for greener pastures
And the fortunes of some long lost tombs.
The sorrows of a mother's heart oft' hint
In echo's upon main streets of despairs gloom
Where lusts ugly ambition always takes its fill of flesh
Along the avenues of the Red Light rooms.
The shadow people always walk it
And are oft' found 'neath a blazing moon
Where John's & their brother's always take what they want
In a place where Spring flower's no longer bloom.

Very true, jealousy begets nothing at last, though it tries a lot in wrongful ways.
