The Witches Brew

hand 010

Enjoy this excerpt from a classic Halloween scene (illustrated by Mel’s homemade brew).

It’s kinda like making soap…but without the body parts.

Round about the caldron go; In the poison’d entrails throw.  Toad, that under cold stone, Days and nights has thirty-one; Swelter’d venom sleeping got, Boil thou firs i’the charmed pot!

Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake, In the caldron boil and bake; Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of frog, Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting, Lizard’s 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.

The Witches Spell, Act IV, Scene I.  MacBeth (1606) by William Shakespeare.

Happy Halloween from the Rocky crew!
