The Trumphant Recipe
Here’s a neat trick you can make at home for free.
It’s a secret recipe you can try.
Take homogenous food items from your cupboard and fridge,
keeping out any unwanted elements you suspect
may unfavorable stain your batter.
Add a dash of theatrical bull manure,
a threat to deny climate change,
a nick of immigrant blood, then evict it from the mixture,
add a flee of hatred, a bolt of abortion,
a pluck of planned parenthood,
an exit of women’s rights as well as worker’s rights.
Then exude an air of rightness.
In the middle of this blend create a valley.
Herein lies the deception, the ultimate trick.
This is where all your scents shall gather
until the stench subsides
settling into a rich mixture of
a wealthy class product.
Push the “like” button.
Tell us how this trumps all your other recipes for living.
What an unappetising feast of wrongs you have served. Really skillful use of the given words

Thanks, but it’s a self-serving recipe.
Clever! Excellent write.
Thank you. Care to share one of your recipes?
Hi, Randy. This version of Heston’s roast potatoes is quite popular on Misk Cooks. http://miskcooks.com/2014/01/03/hestons-perfect-roasted-potatoes/
They look excellent!!!! – if one has the amount of time and attention to detail required to almost overboil potatoes,. not allowing them to mush, separating them patiently, and spending the hours necessary not only to cut them, boil them, callendarize (my made up word) them to cool, bag the rosemary so as not to lose the sprigs, and then oven cook them. I’m exhausted just writing about them and thinking about the process.
Hey if you make them, could you send a few over? Randy 😉
I’m guessing that you don’t grow your own fruit and veg either, 😉 takes a bit of time for those seeds to become edible.
Actually I grow everglades tomatoes, string beans, black eyed peas, green and red peppers, avocados, various citrus, bananas, eggplant, moringa, and star fruit among other things.
I’m impressed. Thoroughly.
yes, and reality bites…
A triumphant recipe for the cooks but not those of us who have to eat it! An intelligent commentary and poem…Double, double toil and trouble!
definitely a witch’s brew…
