This Week’s Guest is    Silently Smouldering Words


I don’t often put in an editorial comment but I have to this time.  This is the 100th edition of Guest in Jest and it is only fitting that #100 should be done by the same person who did #1.  Thank you, my dear, for being part of this series from the very start.  I love you so much for continually submitting pieces, especially when I thought there were no more posts to be had.  ❤️


Green Eyed Monster


Jealousy,  jealousy

Beast that you are,

You sneak up on me 

Though I shun you afar.

My nonchalance- challenged

My sanity- shot.

And my head, mostly cool

Boils up good

Turns to hot.

I glance at the grasping and desperate


That pour out from the mouths

of these snip – snapping birds,

Do they wish to torment me?

Yep. Prob’ly they do

For this monster that’s Green

works not one way

but two.

So this yucky and shameful base feeling I feel

Comes a – running towards me and nips at my heel

And I’m smothered and blasted by (rhymes here with “doors”)

Who desperate to taste you get down on all fours

And brazenly eff you with efforts quite poor

(And hey look, one more word that rhymes SO well with Wh***)

Yet tormented I am

(Though compare I do NOT)

To lascivious harlots here stirring the pot…

I will selflessly shove my true love in your face.

They’re like dolls made of rags

While I’m heat dressed in lace.
