{Poem} Forgetfulwitch by Shel Silverstein

F O R G E T F U L W I T C H

By Shel Silverstein

I used to be a witching witch,
But now I‟m just a watching witch
Watching other witches witching,
Wishing I could be bewitching.
But its sad to tell
I can‟t recall one mystic curse
Or brew a poison. Even worse,
I cannot chant a deadly curse
Or cast a magic spell.
I can‟t turn princes into frogs
Or turn bad children into hogs.
I used to long ago, but now
I seem to have forgotten how.
Was it “Toads and snails and puppies tails”?
Or “Toes and pails of guppies and whales”?
Or “Toast and bales of stale snail scales”?
I search my books and chew my nails
Wonderin’ which is which,
‘Cause a witch which can’t bewitch
Just can’t be a witch!
