Reputation Recipe

Stardust, the movie based on the Neil Gaiman novel.

Robert De Niro as Captain Shakespeare says to the rescued Tristan and Yvaine:

An ounce of bargaining,
a pinch of trickery,
a soupçon of intimidation,
et voila!

The perfect recipe
for a towering reputation
without ever having to spill
one drop of blood.

It is the enumeration that appeals. And the minute quantities required.

And a wry comment on the actor’s art.

And so for day 2699
