Recipe for Aging Money

Get meat, a gobbet red and rank,
something gamy from a back-street butcher,      
ring with bits of pork and lots of lettuce,
with herbs for accents eastern;
and finally steep in a fishy stock
combined perhaps with a fine liqueur
something old from an ancient grotto.
 
And when the lump, once red and raw
transforms to morsels soft and pink
serve, of course, at a debutante’s ball.
