Green-Eyed Lady: Bug-eyes

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Green-Eyed Lady.”

The green-eyed lady comes calling,

every now and then,

She smiles and she whispers,

sweet nothings that provoke malice and mice,

She has all the time in the world for idlers,

For people outward-bound,

She has no time for introspection,

She has no time for hope.
