If I had Magic

If I could wrinkle my nose like Samantha Witch
in the old TV shows from the 60’s and get my way,
I would not ever have to clean a bathroom toilet again.
Anyone remember Hazel the maid? I would get her here.

After all my dreams came true, would I keep my magic to myself
or would I share it?
If I shared it, every long-lost relative I have never liked would hunt me down.
They would want expensive cars, and houses, and prissy poodle dogs.

Magic would mess them up, and they would resent me for my magic.
Best to keep it to myself so they can stay broke instead of greedy.
Magic today could have unloaded the groceries from the car,
and fixed the windshield wipers that kept locking up in the rain.

How I adored Samantha when I was young. As for magic, I wish I never wrote my last poem. Everyone says it's good and I say it sucks. But my nose seems to stay fixed and no magic can change it. Hus.

I am glad that you wrote your last poem, and it is magical, loved it, Victor, so know that you must publish all of your poems and let us show you the truth of them.

what a cute ending on this one.Yes, I would use magic for those awful mundane things that i either don't know how to do or I simply hate to do them. (loved Bewitched)

I adored that show, and "I Dream of Jeannie" was my other most favorite poem, for she could wiggle her nose and get her way also. I think they were both so innocent and fun!
