Repost- Sunday Writing Prompt – Make a wish

I am sharing this post from 25 March, 2020 as a part of Fandango Friday Flashback



I found an old lamp

Not in the cave of wonder

But in the pile of junk by the road

The genie appeared ruffled and distraught 

Instead of cooperation, I was offered disinterest

Reluctantly he offered to fulfill my three wishes

But no more he said, this would be his last stint

No more he said, I am fed up with the greed of the people 

Always money and power, huge houses and cars

Why not ask for something that benefits humanity 

That is good for many not just one selfish person 

I had a brilliant idea, I told him

I want good health for all that are living

I was granted my wish but the world population exploded 

For no one died as there was no illness anymore

I had to reverse my wish with great sadness

And wished him free with my last wish

This is a tricky game he told me

It’s better not to mess with the scheme of things 

The Prompt;

By a means of your choosing you come into the possession of a magical lamp. This lamp contain a D’jinn. He offers you three wishes. The standard limitations apply to your wishes. You can’t ask for unlimited wishes. You can’t wish for someone to fall in love with you and so on. Will you outsmart the genie by carefully wording your wishes or will you bring misfortune on yourself? If you choose the misfortune route you can either go humorous or horror the choice is yours!

  1. Our actions have consequences. The bigger the action, the bigger the consequences. We can’t always know what those consequences will be either. Good, or not so good, even if our intentions are good.
    You’ve written a great parable, Sadje!🌠🌻😍

    I think I’d wish for Nature to be rebalanced. Of course, humanity would probably just ruin it again🙄🤦🏼‍♀️
