Small word, really. Three syllables.
You’d think that a word describing such
a force as Jealousy would be bigger.
Jealousy is big.
It can kill kings, splinter siblings, and
begin bitter battles between the closest
of friends.
You’d think that it would be a bigger word.
But I guess that those moved by Jealousy
are the smallest of us all.
