Jealous as a Bastard

 

(for Stollers)

 

Timothy Stoll’s got new stuff, citizen.
Like all the rest of us, you must admit
You’re jealous as a bastard once again.

You can’t resist this forceful mandate when
Your fate is in his fortune duly writ:
Timothy Stoll’s got new stuff, citizen.

Through Shaolin meditation (much like Zen),
He draws great stuff to where he deigns to sit.
You’re jealous as a bastard once again,

Aren’t you? Sure: breathing deeply, count to ten:
You’ll still be netted in a jealous fit.
Timothy Stoll’s got new stuff! Citizen:

Lower than Stoll is where you’ve always been
Upon the totem pole. And now, you twit,
You’re jealous as a bastard once again!

Grinning with pride, he makes you shout amen
To his whole list of first-rate, bad-ass shit.
Timothy Stoll’s got new stuff, citizen!
You’re jealous as a bastard once again.
