I liked the way you used the workshop prompt "jealously" in this Sneryu...good job for sure...you should post it in the workshop I think..

Hi, Teddy,
Perfect topic for a Senryu! Green-eyed Monster will definitely steal all the joy!
Thank you!

Bloody jealousy, I have honestly never been, I have a sister who always was, I think most have suffered the eyes of the green one in some moment of life. But if we stand tall we can never let it hurt us.

Thank you...Teddy
