I don’t envy

at all,

that you get to play

with the helium all the time,

I don’t require the need to

hog it, to keep others

from dipping their fingers

into the fun

and pulling the vital resource

into ever quicker decline,

I have used it once,

I enjoyed it

and whilst I would like to hear

someone else giggle as their voice

went higher and more ridiculous,

I have no envy that you keep it

wow all to yourself;

I just think that you are

rather greedy

not spreading the last gasps

of hot air
