Hi Come in How are you? Sit for a bit I’ll get you a sweet Give you a nice goody Mix it up in the cauldron Wait while I get the recipe Cipher out the ancient words of lore Are you beginning to feel sleepy yet? Don’t worry about this razor I have Just need some special ingredients It’s a potion made once a year Full of intrigue and magic Sit still while I harvest Were you using these? Delicacy Special brew Great charm You
Careful of the witches brew, that human stew. Don’t ask what is on the menu, for you might find that it is you 😉

THE RICHEST MAN ON EARTH
THE YOUNG SHEPHERD LOOKED UP
TO THE HEAVENS AND SMILED
HE THANKED THE JEWELLED SKY
FOR HIS GOOD FORTUNE
HIS WIFE, THEIR TWIN BOYS,FOUR
SHEEP AND TWO GOATS.
THE JEWELLED SKY LOOKED DOWN ON HIM AND SMILED KNOWING
MANY HAD THANKED IT FOR THEIR GOOD FORTUNE THINKING THAT THEY OWNED THE RICHES OF THE WORLD
BUT ONLY THE YOUNG SHEPHERD WITH HIS WIFE, TWIN BOYS ,FOUR SHEEP AND TWO GOATS WAS TRULY THE RICHEST MAN IN THE WORLD.
