***The following was written and dedicated to my magickal mentor and friend, Sam Webster.
I do not like the Lesser Pentagram.
I do not like it, Magician Sam.
I do not like to call on YHWH.
I do not like to say EHEIEH.
I do not like it with a blade,
Afraid of Harpocrates’ sign made.
Not in the car, in park or tree,
Mr. Crowley, you let me be!
I could not, would not resonate Aiwass,
In my heart, Hekate is boss.
I tried it quickly in a shower,
Elemental waters to empower:
Slipped foot on soap at ADONAI,
Shampoo dripped in left eye.
I do not like it in front of family,
Playing along as mumbled calamity.
I do not like it here or there,
My toddler thinks it is a prayer.
I cannot wait til April’s end,
Pentagrams no more to send.
I tried to like it, I really did,
Banishing negative energies to rid.
I won’t give up, Magician Sam,
The Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram.
