He who cooks by numbers

When great numbers are killed, one should weep over them with sorrow
- Lao Tzu

He who cooks by numbers

1 - cuts slices of rumour
2 - spreads them thickly with fog
3 - and seasons with relish, not too hot
4 - then adds several dashes of boiled omen
5 - and places on tray under medium-high grill
5a - he removes when hot
5b - and places on window ledge
6 - then decorates with morning glories
6b- and serves
7 - with cold victory salad
8 - followed by bramble pie
9 - and makes no charge (himself)


  1. Cooking by numbers is tantamount to painting by numbers - for amateurs only and to be avoided.

  2. Theses days the numbers affected by all these wars always seems to run into millions. Yesterday for example another 400 Christians arrived in Turkey from Bahgdad. And they weren't tourists.
