Genies' Wish

Poetry By: Midnight Jade

A sarcastic summary of Genies, yet can the innocence of a child save them from the incompetence of greedy wishes?

Genies' Wish

Give me a wish
And I'll stab your back
I'll sprinkle some dust
And give all that you lack
'Cause nothing gives hope
Like a man dressed in drag
Popping out of a lamp
With a wand in his hand
But you'll still bow down
And plead for a chance
Where I'll grant every wish
And leave on your last
But a body of blood
Will always crave more
So we give you a choice
The standard three, or the door

Until one fateful day
The polish will run
And a child shall look up
Sucking their thumb
And they'll shake their head
And smile with their gums
For that child's only wish
Will be the one for love
