Sour Grapes (emotions workshop: envy)

she wished for them
to feast upon
little green apples
with tiny brown worms
residing inside
while she should feast
upon the mackintosh
they wore jewled rings
on every finger
precious and expensive stones
while she wore a
single simple band
of silver on one hand
their clothes were of
the latest designer ilk
they sported expensive fashions
decked out from head to toe
her garments were hand me downs
they were willowy and graceful
blond and beautiful
she was petite
With short mousy brown hair
her gait was uncertain
and self-conscious
so easily she could trip or fumble
A secret she carried in her heart
was for fate to intervein
and fairy godmother to switch their places

Last few words: 
This poem is written and posted for the writing with emotions workshop. This topic is: envy or jealousy. The requirements are that you get your point accross without the mention of those two words. I know my title sucks so I ask for alternative suggestions. Thank you.
