Searched for the Devil's mark cord wrenched around the
head chained to the wall of the cell witches bridle forced
inside, prevented from rest a bodkin inserted
hung up by the thumbs burned between the toes
asked of conspirators judgment passed down
taken to the waters edge priests prepare a lost soul
on a quest to cleanse the land
left foot fastened to the right hand strung between
the shore and boat swung and pelted with stones
introduced to the lake
a guilty witch to float retrieved and quickly hanged
an innocent is sure to sink and cleared of past
mistakes, church officials watch for a sign of
pain to prove guilt, murdering allowed by their lord
