NPM: Less Than She Appears

She looms over a cauldron, steaming

Tosses into the pot o’er a fire, gleaming,

A handful of aromatic herbs

With a cackle that frightens and disturbs

The fire glints in her yellowed eyes

Her coin pouch jingles against her thighs

But instead of potent witch’s brew

Her pot is filled with common stew
