Three Witches Cook Something Up....
Age Group: Adult
First Witch. Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.
Sec.Witch. Thrice and once the hedge-pig whin'd.
Third Witch. Harper cries "Tis time, 'tis time.
First Witch.Round about the cauldron go,
In the poison'd entrails throw,
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and nights hast thirty-one
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.
All. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and Cauldron bubble.
Sec Witch. Fillet of fenny snake
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind -worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
All.Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Third Witch.Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witche's mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,
Liver of blaspheming Jew,
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse,
Now of Turk, and Tartar's lips,
Finger of birth -strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
for the ingredients of our cauldron.
All, Double , double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Sec. Witch. Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the Charm is firm and good.

I like this..even if there are some racial.ethnicity issues in this poem...I think that for poetic reasoning that is why it is in the poem, and I do not want to remove it, because I think it is a well written poem! I appreciate the creativity in this well stated poem!
