Dulled – The Alchemist

You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that, once sipped, will make one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) super sharp — but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?

*

I saw him standing on the road.

A man with such a heavy load.

He stretched his hand to offer me,

a vial labeled “Drink me, I’m for free”

*

I shyly moved to take a look,

remembering an ancient book.

Should I risk a tiny taste,

or flee from him with utmost haste?

*

“I mean no harm”, he said to me,

“I merely wish to set you free.

“One sense is all you really need

and with your other senses freed…”

*

“…that which you think is now your best,

can really be put to the test.

Just drink & choose …

… which one to use”

*

I thought about it for awhile.

He waited with an irksome smile.

I turned & ran, ran far away.

I’d deal with him another day!
