My Midas-Touch

I jumped with joy when realized I had the Midas-touch!
I was overwhelmed that I'd now be able to do so much!

Household goods became the target of my experimentation...
Applying my mind, I avoided food-items for the transformation!

My TV, fridge, cupboard, bed, shoes... all had turned golden!
My home was a treasure-house- like Alibaba & 40 Thieves' den!

All the Midas-touch excitement had made me terribly hungry!
But, the socially responsible soul in me won over the foodie.

I ran outside & touched our building- we had a golden abode!
Said bye to pot-holes by saying hi to superior golden road!

The public had gauged my powers and wanted me kidnapped!
I ran as fast as I could, trying to escape, still fell with a thud!

My Midas-touch had many fans who for gold were ready to scream!
I opened my eyes to realize I had fallen from my bed seeing a dream!

    1. Yes Hank! Safety is a concern.
      But, also true that we can (mis)use our power & turn people too into gold! :)
