Winner of the 2015 Year 8 Leonardo Poetry Prize

The winner of the 2015 Year 8 Leonardo Poetry Prize is Alice Marchant.

The Green-Eyed Monster


She walked past me
Money in her bag
Food in her stomach
I wished I was her

And she kept walking
In her designer shoes
Until she reached her warm house
I wished I was her

I sat by the road
Catching coins in my hat
Rummaging for food scraps
I wished I was her

A monster grew on my back
Green eyes
Bright as emeralds
I wished I was her

It weighed me down
Wherever I went
Wherever I saw her
I wished I was her

And I wished
And I wished
And I wished

I wished I was her.
