Jealous looks like two aliens
looking for their mortal prey.
Jealous sounds like five ants
marching down the hill to look for fungus.
Jealous smells like toilet water
rushing down the drain.
Jealous tastes like spaghetti sauce
running into the spaghetti.
Jealous feels like a brick of lead.
Jealous moves like a dozen snakes
slithering into the dust.
