Wordle 94

he’s counting on you

make no fuss
again for the man
making those
impotent
sweet miserable wishes
that always go wrong

the genie
will grant them again
of course to
prove to him
the futility of goals
without any work

the genie
is banking on him
going bust
counting on
the figures going straight down
to miserable

yet again
the genie’s interest
is not in
the riches
but in making him truly
see what is enough

  1. Personally, I hate it when people are counting on me, because I continually disappoint them. I hope the genie is disappointed too!

  2. “yet again the genie’s interest is not in the riches
    but in making him truly see what is enough”

    This last stanza, Richard, tells the tale! The priorities come into view! Thanks for this.
