GENIE

by June Nash

.

Found a lamp, old and dusty

Rubbed ‘til no longer rusty

Clutching lantern to my breast

Dreamed of wishes it’ll bequest

.

Money, money loads of it

Hot new clothes with perfect fit

Handsome lover who’ll be true

Perhaps a few fun friends too

.

To my surprise, wish came true

Jumped for glee, after I knew

Purchased ticket, it had won

Answer to these dreams begun

.

Draped in gems and coat of fur

A handsome suitor bit lure

What a catch, but all for naught

When noticed I’m fish that’s caught

.

Money drain with help of friend

Never noticed, all pretend

Now all alone, worse than broke

All new friends went up in smoke

.

Please old lamp, shiny like new

Tell me what’s a girl to do

Clutching lantern to my breast

Ruing the day of it’s bequest

.

Genie smoke starting to rise

Figure spoke to my surprise

“Now that fortunes have drained out

Learn what work is all about”
