The Spagyrist and The Dissembler

Once upon a time an esoteric rhyme poked through space-time into the sublime Conjured by a reclusive alchemist and a phenomenal fabulist Then there was the hairy apothecary in cahoots with the counterrevolutionary Simultaneously exhorting the masses To disrupt and unify the classes All while the medicine man full of adrenaline Examines a frightened specimen A shaman's apprentice not ready for the rites Given to all witch doctor neophytes Back to the prose invoked by the magus and the prevaricator of the ages Such a set of verses was forever hidden The threat of these curses was ever forbidden
