The Witch's Cauldron

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

Who thought that one up? Was it alchemy

that gave rise to evil annexed to potions

and charms that help or hurt?

.

There is the black witch and the white witch

and probably a few gray witches in between,

but good or ill, I don't believe in sympathetic

magic, dealing with the magic of life

and living is enough spellbinding.

.

Bat's wings in boiling blood, sounds like

Halloween cider with a twist. Eye of newt,

does what exactly? A dead man's teeth

makes a lot of sense as does the heart

of a suicide.

.

All mixed in with Medieval and Pre-History,

the incantationa reek of time and old gods.

Prayer was a call to darkness and salvation

was not a thing to hope for with the

bubonic plague ravaging the hood.

.

The pointed hat, now there's a fashion.

The cat as familiar - always black. Move

over Merlin, Gargamel has yr back.

Baal be damned, I have newer beliefs

to embrace, but I still have not read

Revelations all the way through.

I have a real hot bubbling wizard cauldron in my living room

I have a bubbling cauldron
In my living room
I got it stirred with a broom
The hot broom I sat on
And thru the nightsky I did zoom

Enjoyed the funnyfare.. Happy Hallos to all

Actually had Trick or Treaters This Year

The parents were looking like - it's mandatory that we do this, the kids took one piece of candy from big blowl and I helped them out with 2 handsfulls each and gave some to parents. About eight visitors - up from none last year. Still big bowl full left and the bag was half full of snickers and M&M's and Starbursts. Sugar heaven. Happy Happy! :D
