Witches knit spells into scarves.
When scarves are worn of witches’ spell,
they drag the user into Hell
providing witches pure delight,
and ghosts and ghouls howl in the night
within black magic’s show and tell.

The lasting toll of courtyard bell
alarms the land where spirits dwell,
demanding all to wide-eyed fright
when scarves are worn.

In darkest woods beyond the dell
the incantations do compel
pure terror due to witches’ might,
with faces drained to palest white;
then from this world a grim farewell
when scarves are worn.
