A Charm Against the Virus

 A Reminder to the Wise:

Magical protection is best used in conjunction with, not instead of, practical measures.


Pandemic or no pandemic, it's Spring and time to clear away the Winter detritus.

I'm out in the front yard raking up leaves. What with the molds and the dust that I'm stirring up, I sneeze again and again.

Aha! I think, whipping out my handy-dandy anti-covid face-mask.

Of course, it works like a charm.

Call it a covid benefit.

This charm can be written on paper and carried on the person.

It can also be chanted.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
