Vale amice,

yes satis takes the genitive. There are few more words that always do so, 'quid' comes to mind.

The simple past unfortunately won't do in this sentence. Your verbs are in the future tense.
“Cum ego verbo utar,” Humpty Dumpty dixit voce contempta, “indicat illud quod optem – nec plus nec minus.”
“Est tamen rogatio” dixit Alice, “an efficere verba tot res indicare possis.”
“Rogatio est, “Humpty Dumpty responsit, “quae fiat magister – id cunctum est.”
