STORY CORNER: THE MAGICIAN AND THE GENIE

Which one are you???

The magician and the genie
Friend or foe?
The magician reaps rewards
Whilst the other suffers woe.

The magician and the genie
In the present day,
The magician talks about himself
Whilst the genie gets no say.

The magician and the genie,
One’s selfishness dictates.
The magician demands advice
But no offer to reciprocate.

The magician and the genie,
One has all the clout.
The other is just interference
To merely be drowned out.

The magician and the genie
Guess who hurts the most?
Beyond his usefulness, the genie does not matter,
He is relegated to a ghost.

The magician and the genie,
The narcissistic chap –
When he’s done with poor genie
He’ll shove him in his lamp!

 

JOIN IN THE DISCUSSION…
  • Have you been in one-sided relationships where the other person has used you?
  • How much have you tolerated (if any) before walking away?
  • Should all relationships be based on reciprocity?
