The Witch Test: Nine

For the ninth test, they’ll prick thee with a bodkin or a knife!


If thou feel no pain when poked –

  or if thou fail to bleed –

           or if that spot is cold to the touch –    

               they’ll claim that’s proof of witchcraft!


The Witch Test: Seven


The seventh test they’ll try is PRICKING THE WITCH!

If thou has 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, thou will feel no pain and neither shalt thou bleed!
