A pop-culturally inspired tidbit.

(Translated from a piece I originally wrote in swedish)



I'm the genie in the status-update!

Since you freed me, you get three wishes. These are:

World peace
and last, but not least, a clean environment.

These three wishes, I give to you.

Make them yours,
and we just might achieve a better world.

Interesting variation on the genie story, having the genie select the wishes for you instead of allowing the wisher to pick some vacuous, selfish things like lots of money. Very clever and nicely composed poem.
