Which craft

Burning some sage to
keep free of old age
I’m finding that it doesn’t work
and as reality goes
I need one more big dose
because the last one
didn’t work very well
and the well that I wished in
cost me fifty eight shillings
and that gave me no change at all.

The bars are all closed
who supposed that could be?
it seems I mixed up the dose
and took the one marked as fantasy
but they both looked the same to me.
