You can't spell Jealousy without Lousy, but you can spell Envy without Lousy.

How Envy Works

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

The neighbor’s grass is always greener,
the neighbor’s ass is always cleaner.
His mind is keener, his girlfriend’s leaner,
and let’s not talk about his wiener.

Even leaders show their envy,
given the correct trigger:
“Nuclear button on your desk?
MY button is much bigger!”
