Explosive Recipe

Add dah voice of a singer
to dah smile of a movie star
Insert dah wisdom of a scholar
in dah heart of a jaguar

Mix sum rhetoric
with a faint amount ah fact
Make friends 'n remember enemies
while observin each act

Show inklings ah integrity
butt kompromise when it helps yer fate

Like dah Mango Mussolini
swiftly double-deal
ta achieve key aims

Do this
und wätch power
cum ta yer plate.

Move to the edge ah catastrophe:
be a vehicle of fate!

Terri: (raising her eyebrows) And what do you know about balance?
