    The Mother of Murder

    It is said that it is envy
    To covet someone’s success
    To long jealously to possess
    Just know that it is evil
    The lightening strikes of envy
    Have sparked so many firefights
    There’s global war on fire sites
    Just know that it is live
    Do not clone the genes
    We must abstain from envying
    Don’t put it off till spring
    Just know that it is evil
    Just know that it is live
    Know that it is evil
    Know that it is live
    Know that it is evil
    Know that it must die.

    If envy is the mother of murder,
    Then hate must be the father of pain.

    If Mother do enough striking while the iron is hot...
    how much pain will Father get a chance to feel?
    your words echoes the truth...Die it must!
    ~Father rules...until Mother appears~
