when making up this recipe the first thing that you need
is a bit of crinkly paper and pen that doesn't bleed
you'll also need a cupboard that's filled up with useless junk
and a giant steel mixing bowl that's bigger than a trunk
you add a pinch of this and that and taste along the way
with giant globs of you don't know but add it anyway
and every time you add a thing you take and write it down
then stir it up and watch it turn a kind of muddy brown
And once it's done you get to do the most important bit
you take a big old spoonful and you raise it to your lip
and , WHAT THE HECK YOU DOING!?! I didn't say to eat,
who eats a cure for bunions? You PUT IT ON YOUR FEET!
