The Lyrics

Now that we've been through all seven of the Deadly Sins, are we going to Hell? Look for me at Hell's Ale Stand, The Lusty Lucifer, where all we serve is Budweiser.
Jealousy
Overwhelms me all too zealously
There is no escaping that for me
I'm choking on my jealousy

I want that!
You just showed it off to be a brat
Those new leather pants make you look fat
You might as well just give me that

How'd you get that job?
You're a slob, it's plain to see
You must have some luck
'Cause you suck, compared to me

Woe is me!
Why does everyone have more than me?
I wish I could win the lottery
I am so sick of poverty

I just hate this crap
You're much happier than me
I'm consumed with spite
I can't fight my jealousy

Jealousy
It appears to be my destiny
To be overwhelmed by my envy
And choking on my jealousy

Great idea! I guess missed the others during a long vacation. Will have to go back and check.

Yes, John - check out the others as they're all as good (or better) than this :-)

An enviable job--great pacing/rhymes, perfect expression of the sour-grapes attitude. Fives all round...and waiting for your next theme-and-variations cycle!

Man - this thing just made me really jealous. Why does Ravyn Rant get all the good comments? I really liked your project Rav. Well done indeed.

Ravyn - Great project concept and excellent execution within it.

Nice series. I still like this one, but your rhyme scheme is stronger in some earlier ones. And that makes seven. Nice work all around, R'n'R

I read the whole cycle. Utterly inspired. "Lechery" was my favorite.

Maybe "I wish I could win the lottery" could have been "Wish I could win on the lottery". But that's the only line where my tounge stumbled. Maybe just my problem though. :-)

Thanks, everybody! John: "Lechery" was my favorite, too. :)

No, the existing lottery line is perfect, while the proposed change gets stresses on the wrong syllables ("wish", "could", "on" instead of the more natural sounding "I", "I", "win").
