Greener on the Other Side


Here he tries to decide
If the grass is greener on the other side.
On a fence of indecision
He looks as far as he can see.
The grass is greener on the other side
But small barbed wire keeps him in.
He can see as plain as day
The green grass there, where hopes do play.
On the ground is that a snake?
On the fence no risk he’ll take.
He’ll stay there a while longer,
While he gives this thought a ponder.

Greener Grass?


The other side of the fence.
How is the grass there?
How is the air there?
You say it’s the same as here.
You look happy.
I suppose I’ll be content
With what I have,
And where I am.
