Cecilia W. Praetorius

(Jefferson, Louisiana)

Voodoo Woman

She was small and wizened, brown as a berry,
And everyone called her "Dago Mary".
In a ramshackle house, overgrown with weeds,
She lived and practiced her evil deeds.
It was said she changed into a cat at night,
And roamed the streets until the morning light.

If she ever procured a lock of your hair,
She would cast an evil spell then and there,
