The secret, summarized in Haiku

Recommended Posts

Since there seem to be about a million threads about the Cremonese 'Secret', how about a different take?  Might be able to give all the debating the old flick, eh?  So why don't you wankers summarize your 'secret'(s) in Haiku(s)?!  I think it'll be bloody brilliant!  All ratbagging must also be of the same type.  Ok, go!

Secret?  I don't know

Many others say they do

I just find what's not

 

or

 

The concept is valid

The test is quite logical

What the hell happened?

The secret requires

More than seven syllables

On the second line.

 

So we go, without

Hope to find what the old boys

Knew, when they did know.

 

It seems that haiku

Is not the ideal mode of

Transferring secrets. 

 

But if you must be

Inspired by snow covered pines 

Haiku is magic.

Haiku- high schmoo, a real Cremona secret would hidden in Petrarchan Sonnet, stick that in your bonnet, Avocado Devil. 

I disagree.  A Catullan epigram (most likely an invective) seems to me more probable.  :lol:

Yet we search and hope

To find what the old boys knew

If they ever did

Oh, right now I saw that Petrarchan sonnet is needed. Could a Shakespearian pass?

 

To make this liquid is simple; nothing but a trick

There are some basic stuffs you will need

The results, I trust, you will find quite chic

But listen to what I say and please take heed

 

Begin with good ground, fresh fat free cheese will do

Add slaked lime, quark and linsed oil -  puree well

To this add varnish layers, to thicken like a roux

Colophony, lime past and turpentine - taste and smell

 

And when your varnish is nearly done

There are some final garnish to add

Chilli paprika and rabbit urine - use a ton!

Now you've made your soup, and aren't you glad?

 

A homemade recipe is one's of life's true pleasures

Nothing less than a bowl of pure liquid treasures

............Add ..... quark ...............

 

 

Highly flavored and even strange, one suspects, but not free, unfortunately.   :)  :lol:  :ph34r:

having a secret

an interminable itch

never scratching it

These should be done in iambic pentameter

 

Bon nuit, dormir

The one who sleeps will know it

I will not tell it.
