Take the heart of a broken lass, swung around your pinky fast
Heal her heart with new-strung strings, place it on a shipyard’s mast
Earthy tones of rain-fell soil, collect it all and waste your toil
Raging cries of men and boys, wrap their mouths in silver foil
An elder man with burning pains, douse him in the frigid lake
Place ‘em in the cauldron good, chop him up for heaven’s sake
Embers from a dragon’s tongue, burn them to your sluggish feet
Ugly men and virgin girls, kill them both so none can meet
Take this spell and chant it well, use it when you need to quell
Insidious harms drawn up in arms — no emotions shall rebel
Cure your tears and all your fears: use it as your death draws near.
