bubble bubble toil & trouble

by @according2kelly on October 11, 2007

witches brew

fillet of a fenny snake,
in the caldron boil & bake;
eye of newt, & toe of frog,
wool of bat, & tongue of dog,
adder’s fork, & blind-worm’s sting,
lizard’s leg, &owlet’s wing,—
for a charm of powerful trouble,
like a hell-broth boil & bubble.

double, double toil & trouble;
fire burn, & caldron bubble.

unlike the witches in macbeth, this witch’s brew isn’t made of toads and lizards. instead, i used spray foam insulation that i picked up at my local home improvement store.

after it was dry & hard i painted it green & hot glued on some toy eye balls, spiders & skulls… care to have a taste?
