In the too-high-to-reach cupboard,
in the always-busy kitchen,
the liquid bullion that was 
Tate & Lyle's Golden Syrup,
next to it's nemesis,
Tate & Lyle's Black Treacle,
one a spoonful of sweet heaven,
the other a spoonful of wicked hell,
and next to those opposing tins,
the great leveler after a couple of hefty swigs,
the unblocker for inner-tube plumbing,
California Syrup of Figs.
