Practical Magic Party Poem


The Aunts were known for their potions of love
they would secure it's bound by piercing a dove.
They grew weary of taking the life of the birds,
so they went to the toy store, neither said a word.

So when women would come begging to possess a certain man, 
The Aunts would do a little spell, and a witchy slight of hand.
They'd pull out a toy, kinda like the one in the book,
Shut the eyes of the women, took their hands and shook!
The women were so convinced that the 
spell did take,
they went out the next day and 
ordered the big cake.
The Aunts would laugh and thought 
if it's meant to be,
they'd end up together anyway,
 no harm that they could see.
Little did they know that their spell 
had "kinda" worked,
All the men fell in love, 
but turned out all to be jerks!
The Aunts sighed and went back to the book.
then looked at each other with a peculiar look.
They decided it's not possible to find a man without many flaws,
they're hairy and stinky and 
eat like beasts with claws!
So, instead of having a blue light special 
and accept their returns,
they told the women, bring back your man, 
show us your concerns!
The women gathered in a gaggle 
like geese all over the lawn,
their men at their heels, their patsy and pawns.
When the Aunts said today only,
 you can exchange your man for another,
They looked at their men, then one said,
"well he is nice to my mother."
The big pot was boiling waiting 
for someone to exchange,
when the strangest thing happened, 
the kettle started to drain.
The women looked at their men and thought, 
what is this game,
They were flawed, and not perfect but, 
theirs all the same.
No one knows if the Aunts still dabble in love,
We'll only find out if there's a shortage of doves.
