That mortar was mixed a while ago
It’s not quite fresh, as mortars go
It’s getting stiff, it starts to set
But it’s not garbage, not quite yet.
Time to temper that old mud
Add some water, quickly bud
Just a little, not too much
Chop with a trowel, a hoe and such.
It gets more fluid, fresher too
After it’s been mixed by you
Use it up while you can
Before you have to mix again.
