Tea Genie

Listen to Suzy's poem ... read by JH
Once when I was pouring tea,
a genie landed in my cup.
He offered me a single wish
and warned me not to mess it up.

Money? Fame? A motorbike?
My perfect wish! What would it be?
I munched a biscuit, lost in thought ...
then drank the genie with the tea.
