Daily Prompt: Genie

A frazzled parent wanted a genie

Was tired of hearing “he’s being a weinie”

Her only son was a bit of a meanie

So rubbed the lamp’s side till sheeny.

Later while preparing linguine

She was sipping a strong martini

Thought she saw the hoped for genie.

He told her the problem was hardly teeny

And “not to expect a trick like Houdini.”

“These affairs are best served by the parents

When their children are being errant

The answer appears to be transparent

State the rules and be coherent.”
