Temper the mortar

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.
