Spell For Continuous Precipitation, Prevailing Gale- Force Winds And Foul Sky Most Forbidding - Poem by colm ferriter

These words you incant with tintern steady
A purple candle illume with left hand alone
Scent pot pourri with pungent enzyme
Your unspeakable ingredients thee have ready
For on count of thirteen (and previous numbers prime)
Three tones on bell; intone from malelevolent tome:

Strike pike thrice,
Spiked spiced rice,
Pickled stickleback's spittle,
Intestine of insalubrious malodourous walrus
Blubber of Antarctic species unknown.
Stock of marinated pelvic whalebone.

Quaff a draft- by the neck- of eau de giraffe
Exhume from his tomb the leg of baboon
Adrenaline scoop for monkey brain gloop
A Cobra entrap and snake wine extract,
Its venom supplement with zest of lemon'
Chilled, freshly squeezed, begged borrowed or stolen,
Blood of human child locally grown.'
