Blend your potion dark and strong with umbra,
add an adder’s tongue and warmth of tundra,
mix with splinters from the hangman’s gallow,
a spider’s web and some prayers shallow.
Then stir it widdershins eleven times,
add lies, excuses for for a killer’s crime,
Then drink it warm while bell strikes thirteen
It cures arthritis and mend a failing spleen.
A little recipe for dVerse OLN where Linda hosts.
