A Modern Fable

Trifecta gave us a challenge this weekend to write a fable in exactly 33 words.  I almost didn't do this prompt until I got the following idea.  Enjoy!



“Give me lots of money,” wished the bank.
Genie nodded.  It happened.
“Give me property.”
Genie nodded.  It happened.
“Make me happy forever.”
Genie nodded.  The bank lost everything.

Money doesn’t buy happiness.



Also - check out the Don't Panic Picture Prompt for the week.  Link-up happens here on Wednesday.

    1. Isn't that the truth. It may not buy happiness but it sure doesn't hurt either!
