Stir into the essence pot
Close-up, cross-fade and mid-shot
Sprinkle short ends on the gruel
Tape splice and camera spool

Focus and fade
A-B rolling, f-stop and grade

Swirl the potpourri around
Sync-pulse, pic-sync and sync-sound
Chalk of slate and pinch of pan
Reclaims, reversals, recans

Mag-stripe, mic-tap
Kodachrome, cut-away and clap

Fire, burn, and cauldron, splutter
Double sprocket, frame line cutter
All hail, Murnau

Round about the cauldron go
In the Fujicolour throw
Leader, white or clear or black
Splice it with an atmos track

VNF, Plus X
Double X, Four X, Tri X

Make the gruel thick and slab
Com-mag, com-opt and sep-mag
T-core, B-winding and dub
Cool it with an actor's blood

Fade-out, fade-in
Double-headed, edge numbering

Fire, burn, and cauldron, simmer
Black/white spacing, grip and dimmer
All hail, Mayer

Pare a print in the potion
Season it with slow motion
By the swaying of the booms
Something wicked this way zooms

Coated and cut
Shutter speed, through the base, light-struck

Now about the cauldron sing
Mark it, in camera, running
Show your negs and grieve your art
Come like shadows, so depart

Mystic circle
Round the reel sparks now hurtle

Fire, burn, and cauldron, fester
Acetate and polyester
All hail, Fritz Lang
