The Witch Test #7
The seventh test they’ll try is PRICKING THE WITCH!
If you’ve a birth mark, flea bite, spot, or scab – they’ll say it’s where the devil suckles.
It’s the sign of a pact made with Satan.
If they prick it, you’ll feel no pain and neither will you bleed!
The Witch Test #6
The sixth test is the LAYING ON OF HANDS.
If you touch someone throwing a fit –
and they suddenly stop –
they’ll claim you are the cause of their affliction!
The Witch Test #5
The PRAYER challenge is the hardest.
If you can’t recite the Lord’s Prayer correctly –
without any error or stumbling –
then you must be a witch indeed!
Witch Test #4
Do you send forth a ghost in SPECTRAL FORM?
If a familiar spirit –
or spectral self –
or apparition from you is seen by the villagers . . .
then you are a witch!
Witch Test #3
Have you got any TOOLS OF THE CRAFT?
If you make ointments, poisons, and herbals –
Or fashion wax dolls into likenesses –
Or learn from spell books and magic charts –
Aye, then they’ll claim you are truly a wizard or witch!
Witch Test #2
“If folk think you are a witch –
and you make a free and voluntary confession to that effect –
then you are indeed a witch.”
“In forgetting the past
we lose the powers from whence we came.”
