Green with Envy. 
You push me to the right.
You push me to the left.
Now I am all alone on this plate.
The garlic mashed potatoes were picked first.
Then the fried chicken. 
Followed by the carrots.
Even the peas I thought you hated. 
I am always last, if picked at all. 
Even when I dress myself up with melted cheese. 
Green with envy,
I’m left for the dog to eat.
