Bjorn has asked us to use the name of
a poison or poisons in our Tuesday
Poetics this week. I've indulged in a
bit of fiction (Momma forgive me!).

Double double toil and trouble
How does your garden grow
Magic potions for casting spells
Things that witches know
Momma taught me all she knew
The secrets of dark magic
If someone crossed my Momma
Results could be quite tragic.
Once a cheating lover
A charming, handsome jock
Succumbed to imbibing the pleasure
Of Momma’s cocktail of hemlock.
I grew up in the wonders
Of Momma’s apothecary
I never really understood
Why my friends all seemed so wary.
