Witch One?

WITCH ONE?

Witches have been given a bad name, compared to warlocks, which are men.  Whoever heard of a warlock?   See, they’re kept secret, while females get all the blame.  (“She’s a nasty old witch.”)

Witches are often called hag, crone, harpy, harridan, she-devil and battle-ax.  Warlocks are sometimes called wizards.

If someone with a red cap riding on a broomstick asks for candy on Halloween,  notice if she’s a he or not, and if he’s old and red-headed.  Then you can get ready to run,  but be civil!

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
