Clarifying a word to Watson




I hate comparison, greedy eyes holds 
Such hunger, perpetually starving 
Wanting and needing, green eye monster 


I have seen the wickedness in man 
For just by greed, of wanting more 
To have brought down a nation 


Corruptness of the soul 
It even invades the holiest places 
Of man made to hold our moral compass 


But you see, my dear Watson 
A conundrum of the coin rule 
Springs to mind, coins and their two sides 


For how does one set a bench mark 
Without the assistant of what stands 
To glorify, as heights reached to aspire 


You see, Watson, I hate comparison  
Where in lies, the claws to envy 
Poking out from ten fingers, nails 


Allowing greed to set up stool
In one's comfort "casa" with hate 
Like cancerous cells, spreading fast  


But never when, it stands as a light house 
Navigating through the midnight fog 
On, with my sailor captain's hut 


Aye aye, to reach harbors, without shipwreck 
Do not confuse my word, Watson 
When indeed I say I hate comparison 

Sherlock Holmes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sherlock_(TV_series)

  2. I like how you addressed this to "Watson" - a nice mood to it. Is this in reference to Sherlock Holmes? If so, how ironic that the writer here hates comparisons!
