The Dreamer

Once upon a time In a backyard with a vine A lady pretended to find A lamp with a genie inside. She rubbed it until it shined Again and again with twine Two puffs of smoke in a line Poured out of it in her mind. She thought of the wishes Soon coming her way Her heart beating faster "Imagine," she'd say. That genies existed And wishes came true In everyone's yard For me and for you! Just then he appeared As big as she thought Her eyes blinked three times The image was caught! The lamp disappeared Near the leg of his pant Her wish had been granted And she woke up from her nap.
