Olivia's Magic

Olivia just had to have the best grade in the class,
So she wished on the first snowflake.
Then all her classmates failed the test they had to take.

Olivia just had to be the fastest runner in the class,
So she wished on a four-leaf clover.
Then all her classmates broke their legs before the race was over.

Olivia just had to have the prettiest face in the class.
So she wished on a lucky horseshoe.
Then all her classmates' faces turned an ugly shade of blue.

Olivia just had to be the richest girl in the class.
So she wished on a wishbone.
Then all her classmates started asking her if she could spare a loan.

Finally Olivia decided that her classmates should be happy, too.
So she wished on some shooting stars.
Then Olivia found herself transported to the planet Mars.
