Green in your eyes

You believe the grass is greener?
I asked a friend
who had told me
he was jumping the fence
to move to the other yard
where the cow’s mouth
never stopped chewing.
Convinced in his ways,
he laced his shoes
and was heading to the fence
as a first step of execution.
What he failed to understand
was that the cow’s constant chewing
was mostly from regurgitation
and had nothing to do
with the other yard’s grass being greener.

  1. eat your own grass, it is personal and powerful, that’s how it works for all.

    I think that you try to pass a message that can not be carried out in direct words, but the metaphor is awesome.

  2. Well said and a clear and concise meaning of the common ideology of the “grass is always greener on the other side” I believe is actually a deeper insight into the strengths and pitfalls of human nature.
