UNCLEAN SPIRITS: Envy ... Plain Envy!




Precious Pearls
Pasty Pig
AND
Putrid Pennies
Famous Friend
Friendly Fiend
Fractious
False
AND
Fiddly
Blighter, Baxter, Bing
AND
Boss
Outrageous Anger
Cruel Wrath
AND
Secret Praise
Were All In Attendance At
Clear De Aire
Waiting
Some Patiently
Some Worriedly
- None Indifferently -
For Envy ... Plain Envy
To Do The Usual
AND
Blaze!

All The Brethren
Had Individual
Some May Say Peculiar
Some May Say Particular
Issues!
They Intermittently
Cussed Each Other Out
 - Just Because -
AND
As And When Necessary
AND
Made Up Often
- As Appropriate -
BUT
There Had Not Been
A Single Soul
Who Could Hold Their Own Against
Envy ... Plain Envy
Until
Open Rebuke
Into The Family
Had Adroitly
Walked In
Without A Shout
AND
Displaying No Doubt
Unceremoniously
Calmly
AND
Surprisingly Lovingly
Given Envy ... Plain Envy
His Very First Rout!

He Was Not Well Pleased!
But ... I Digress!

Pasty Pig
Always Stepped Upon
Precious Pearls!
AND
Precious Pearls Despised
Putrid Pennies
Because
Well, Because
Pennies Cannot Hold A Light Up To Pearls
Now, Can They?!

High Flying Precious Pearls
Forgot
Ignored
AND
Dismissed From All Consciousness
The Fact That
An Accumulation From
Putrid Pennies
Permits Particular People
To Purchase Pearls
For A Premium Price!

Altercations In The Clan
Caused Chaos
AND
It Is Not Unheard Of
For
The Occasional Crime
To Have Been
Casually Committed
Causing
Considerable Consternation!

But ...

What About Envy ... Plain Envy!
Who, Where, Why ...?!?
What Is He All About?!

Nice! You Called Out His Whole Name!

Envy ... Plain Envy
Is A Hustling Harridan
Who Highjacks Praise
Harasses Effort
Hounds And Hates
Hinders Progress
AND
Highlights Flaws
In Everything
Against Everyone
Anyone
Everytime Anything Excellent
Before Them
As Bounty
Is Placed
Just Because
He Did Not Get It
FIRST!

Envy ... Plain Envy
Is Just Plain Hateful
AND
He Is Past Master
At Getting
Outrageous Anger
AND
Cruel Wrath
To Do His Dirty Work!

Envy ... Plain Envy
Aka Jealously
Is Never Contented
With What He Has
Nor With
What He Gets!

Dissatisfaction Is His Disease!
Discontentment Is His Creed!
Destruction Is His Feed
AND
Hate Is The Strutting Steed
That He Faithfully Leads!
That Is How He Gets "The Feels!"

Remember ...

Envy ... Plain Envy
Jealousy - Same Personality -
Is What Momentarily
"Darkened" Heaven!
Lucifer Wanted
What Was Not His To Have
Nor To Hold
Nor To Know
So He Determined
He Would Have It All
As If His Selfish Desire
Was To The Holy God Of Heaven
Bright Gold!

For His Presumption
Lucifer Received
An ... OPEN REBUKE!
AND
Upon The Earth
He Did Unceremoniously Land!

The Outcome For Lucifer
Is
He Has Been Renamed
Satan - The Adversary
AND
He Was From Highest Heaven Cast Out!
He Can't Go Home Again
AND
Now
He Ever Always
At And Against Frail And Fallible Man 
Plots And Pouts!

Satan Is A Malevolent Spirit!
He Is Powerful
AND
He Is Motivated By Hate!
He Hates What God Loves
AND
In His Dealings With Mankind, My Friend
He Does Not Wear Kid Gloves!

The Continuing Fallout
From That Debacle
Is Still
Disturbing
AND
Destroying
Mankind To This Day
AND
All Who Indulge Satan's Envious Spirit
(Yes ... It Started With Him!)
Will Also Gain And Get
What He Got!
Not A Whole Lot!

Remember Eve!
Remember Cain!

Despise Envy!
Despise Greed!
Embrace Contentment Of Spirit
AND
Let Jesus The Christ
The Eternal God
- Who For Us Died -
In Your Embittered-By-Sin Life
Take The Glorious Lead!
