The Recipe For Disaster

The recipe for disaster
starts with the staples
fire air water

and seasonal variations

The recipe for disaster uses a graduated cup
uses a knife edge

Viscous risk added slowly in a thin stream
will curdle if you are not careful

whisk

Expectations
soaked in spirit
sink to the bottom

There is a precipitous edge
It crumbles and
a little goes a long way

The recipe for disaster
will not rise and refuses to set
will stick and will not turn out

is not
a serving suggestion

      Yes, Pete put up a post on facebook saying he was writing a recipe for disaster and it made me wonder what things would be in such a recipe.
