NaPoWriMo Day 5: Backpedaling

After sa317px-George_Romney_-_Anger,_Envy,_and_Fear_-_Google_Art_Projectying I didn’t think I’d 8979o–excuse me; cat on keyboard–use many of the daily prompts, I’m going back to one from an earlier day: writing a spell or incantation.  People always have said I’m a bit witchy–I think that was the word they used–so surely this is appropriate.  Onto my spell.

 

 

An Enchantment Against Fear

Bring me seven rabid bats,

Ashes from old ladies’ hats.

Add one car with missing brakes

And venom from two Mambo snakes.

Season with a poison toad

And pinch of darkened country road.

Make paste of all I fear the most;

Slather it with jam on toast.

Eat while reading ex’s letter.

If toast is burned–even better.
