Double, double toil and trouble and Harry Potter and Crushed Velvet Sofa's

Last year on the run up to Halloween I did a quick re-write of a certain Shakespeare poem or was it Wordsworth or Jackson Pollock, and this was it. Now you might be thinking he is repeating stuff again (thats me not Jackson Pollock) but sadly today events have made it impossible to do anything else. Now I could just think sod it and not bother, but I am not that sort of chap so I am repeating stuff instead which is probably worse. It is a bit of culture though even if it is a bit like sticking a safety pin through the nose of the Mona Lisa painted, incidental between 1503 and 1517 by my old mate Leonardo who got a bit infatuated with the woman who worked at the local Spar shop and sold him Sherbet flying Saucers which in turn made him come up with his mad idea for a flying machine . . . . . Ooooooooo he was a bit of a one that Leonardo, it is probably best if we dont mention his drawings of body parts and his choice of soft furnishing for his own Drawing Room, I mean Pink and light Orange with grey crushed velvet . . . .    

AH I appear to have got a bit distracted OK back to that (repeated) Poem        

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In Hogwarts caldron boil and bake;
Eye of Potter, and toe of frog,
Wizard’s hat, and tongue of dog,
Ron Weasley’s hair, and blind-worm's sting,
A wizards leg, and owlet's wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
"Mad-Eye" Moody’s hat; tooth of wolf;
Witches' mummy; maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark;
Boot of Malfoy digg'd i the dark;
Liver of Mister Sirius Black;
Gall of goat, and horns of yak
Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse;
Nose of Turk, and Miss Grangers lips;
Finger of Albus Percival Brian Dumbledore
deliver'd by post, from the Argos Store
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingrediants of Hogworts caldron.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with Harry Potter’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and as much use as mud.

  1. There's nothing wrong with repeats...unless it's your food repeating on you, then it's not so pleasant.

    1. Well its Halloween soon Miss Lily so it might count as a trick around these parts.
