Anonymous Bull Recipe – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

The trouble with conspiracies is that they rot internally.” Robert A. Heinlein

Anonymous Bull Recipe

Imagine
taking the faeces of a bull,
two wings of a fairy,
the hoof of a unicorn,
one ancient rams horn,
a dash of paranoia,
lashings of white lies to taste,
a garnish of manson and jones,
top with the letter Q and, 
with hammer, spoon and 
crackpot, forge a technicolour 
nightmare, a vile syrup,
as vaccination against
imagination for a better world.
Inject a host and watch it spew
the most indredulous
unhinged tripe.

  5. Wow, I love how unexpected and different this is. The contrast between fantasy with the unicorn and the realism with the vaccine. This could be the perfect recipe for the Halloween witches brew (in a good way, you write so well)

  7. I have always asked myself whether the extent of irrational ideas also exists in other countries?
    Apparently it’s similar there.
