It's strange how 'the grass always looks greener on the other side'!

That Greener Grass

 

They stood upon their separate hills,

One facing east, the other west.

They both were kind of jealous

And wanted to perform a test.

 

One claimed that the other’s grass

Was really so much greener,

Thought that there, the atmosphere,

Was really that much cleaner.

 

The other looked across and thought

The grass looked really thick

The thin green stuff was not much use

And left her feeling sick.

 

They came to an agreement,

Came up with their own plot,

They’d go down their hills, up again,

They’d do themselves a swap.

 

But the grass it seems was just the same

Neither thicker, nor much cleaner,

It was simply just a case of that

The grass is always greener....’
