Gigi’s Never-Fail Recipe

Your first task–
if someone tells you
he holds the recipe
for (anything that’s
too good to be true)–is
to listen with
the brains of Phyrro
‘cause no one has
cooked that up yet

It won’t take an ounce
of effort to figure
him out–no how
or a teaspoon of
thinking about it
either, anyway
just sift through all
the gobbledygook–
separate the baloney

Now, he might try
to stir things up and
throw in a pinch or a
pound of smooth talking
but you mix whatever
he says until it all
boils into a froth
whenever he tries
to mince your doubt

I say to cook his
goose then let it cool
for as long as it takes
to jell that your brain
is beating better than his–
top your toughness off
with a smile that serves
pure satisfaction; you didn’t
bite! Delicious! Enjoy!
