Bottled Magpies



Beware of Genies bearing gifts.





















A genie once told me; “I’ve come from afar
To give you a room, with good light and a spa.”
“Oh goodie! My wish has been granted!” I cried,
“Will I need a latch key, to get me inside?”
“No need,” he replied, driving off in my car.
“When you find your room, you will see it’s ajar!”

 More bottled magpies here.

  1. Magic! Well, it would be using a genie - Very clever wordplay and a witty rhyme. That picture prompt was asking for a bit of humour.

  2. Though your glass room door may be ajar
    And no doubt handsome genie is clever
    That car you slaved so hard to acquire
    Has gone to the land of the never never

    (though if you sip through your straw, you won't mind - really)

  4. Is that you in that enormous jar, and is that piss you're sitting in? No, too white--must be gin or vodka because surely't it's not water.

    1. Maybe you know what it is like to expose your nether end to alcohol but I doubt it. Vodka stings my mouth. What it would do to organs further south, I will not be testing! :-)

    1. Thanks Helena, for the last few weeks I have been separated from my modem when the Magpie flew, so responses have been late.
      I promise to mend my forgetful ways.

    As the world's preeminent authority on the matter, I must inform you that you are wrong.

  12. You are right Snow, I have never tried it. AND I will take your word for it. Apart from any other reason not to try, I am pretty sure I would rather drink it!
