Sugar Hates Recollections

'Handle not the lesser fruit!', so spake the chieftain bold, [The Agent Apsley]

"For when you handle lesser fruit your fingers will turn gold!" [Mrs TG]

And surely you would rather that your clansmen were not told [TG]

That pewter turns to copper when the weather is too cold [The Agent Apsley]

"I think you be cautious and return to whence you came [P]

"And never tell the customs man your true and secret name [TG]

And hide this small potato in your sock to make you lame [P]

But try it with a walnut and you'll never be the same [Grayman]
