we want to own what others own.
“I want her job, I want her car,
and oh dear God her shiny phone.”

His mind is keener, his girlfriend’s leaner,

Even leaders show their envy,
given the correct trigger:
“Nuclear button on your desk?
MY button is much bigger!”
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!
