A FIGURE FOR INFLUENCES OVER ANOTHER

A FIGURE FOR INFLUENCES OVER ANOTHER

If with fetters, you would tame,
The angry foe, Or bind with shame,
The faithless friend,
Draw this figure In red ink.
In the corners That remain,
Mark four letters Of his name;
Burn the paper; Say this charm:
Circle him round, Cross him within,
Turn him about, and cast him out.
