Recipe to win

Grate and grind the sense
pretend it’s tender,
glace with lies,
then spice with fake vanilla,
poach it slender
reduce until the lard remains
serve it lukewarm
invent it’s promised.

    • This time, I saw “peach it slender” and thought of James and the Giant Peach, which is what I see in that picture.

  1. The business of swindles – where somebody wins big and somebody loses … everything – is often a formula, or recipe, delivered with fake “homey” sincerity. A vivid analogy.

  2. “…reduce until the lard remains…” oh my…..the liar’s web…
    and then I think of the “greasy palm” of the con man…
    well done! (the poem, not the temperature you want to bake it to)
